Product Description

Our Third aircraft is a custom made model made for 2 clients who contacted
us specifically for an A10 Warthog and is not available on general release.
However it's such an awesome looking piece we figured you would enjoy the
pictures regardless. The A10 Warthog was built by Fairchild in the 1970's
and saw widespread service with the USAAF, in fact it is still in frontline
service but is also now being allocated to some Air National Guard units.
Designed mainly for the Anti tank/personnel role, the A10 Warthog can absorb
a huge amount of battlefield damage due to the 540kg of armour round the
cockpit and other vital areas. Armed with a 30mm Gatling gun and a wide
variety of  underwing weapons, the A10 is a fearsome opponent on the
battlefield. Something like 900 Iraqi tanks and 1200 artillery pieces were
destroyed by A10's in the First Gulf War and it is still seeing action in
the Middle East against ISIS today. The A10 is 53ft long and has a wingspan
of 57ft which makes our 1/30 scale model something of a beast and our
biggest yet! We made 2 versions, a gear up variant in flight mode and a gear
down version, both are in the 2 tone grey paint scheme which is common to
many modern aircraft these days. We do plan on making a limited edition 1/35
scale version of the A10 in gear up flight mode, sporting the green European
woodland colour scheme (picture attached). If you are interested in
registering for this unique aircraft please email me at your earliest
convenience and I will also answer any questions you may have. Delivery of
the 1/35 scale version is expected to be middle of June 2016 so plenty of
time to save up your pennies!
