This Revell model has been on my shelf for many years. I’m almost done with it, and am really enjoying putting it together. I’ve read another comment about poor fit, but I’ve not had any problems at all in that regard. Actually, I find the opposite, all of the parts have great detail, a nice fit, and are very well molded. The quality of the detail is very nice, Revell’s craftsmanship seems high quality to me. For example, Revell took great pains to include very precise interior details inside the nose section of the wheel well, also inside the bottom of the wing wheel wells – something that almost nobody would see if the plane is mounted on a static ground display – but the model builder sees it! A minor point, the drawing on the box cover shows the plane in flight, however the model comes as a static display (like the picture you see with canopy open, etc.). I had thought I’d have the option of either building it as in-flight, or on the tarmac, but apparently not. I would highly recommend this model to any other intermediate builder out there. I do agree with the other reviewer that it’s leaning toward being more an advanced build, potentially deserving a 3 instead of a 2 for difficulty level. That’s because the parts are detailed, finely fit and need precise glue technique so the details on the parts are not ruined. So in conclusion, this is not a good starter model for my 9 year old grandson – but for older and/or more patient modelers this Revell kit will provide you with many hours of fun model building, as it is for me. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 35 of 39 people found the following review helpful Nice model but not for the modeling novice., March 31, 2006 By A. Granata (Spanaway, WA) – This review is from: Revell 1:48 A10 Warthog (Toy) I just finished building this kit today and finally breathed a sigh of relief! It should really be a Skill Level 3 kit. The fit is terrible in the wings and engine nacelles, but the most annoying fit problem for me was with the anti-sway brackets on the pylons. They don’t fit…That’s all there is to it. Be prepared to have to sand down all 22 of the brackets. Even then I had to leave some of them off because I couldn’t get the weapons payload to attach to the pylons with the anti-sway brackets in the way. I’m still a rookie when it comes to using filler, but I had to use it on this kit and, luckily, it came out not too bad. When the model was completed, it looked rather nice. That’s why I would give this kit 3 stars out of 5. I’ve said it earlier but it must be said again: You will HAVE to use contour putty and do lots of sanding for this kit to look even remotely nice. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 13 of 14 people found the following review helpful Nice Kit for the Price, January 8, 2012 By Jeff – This review is from: Revell 1:48 A10 Warthog (Toy) I found the kit to be quite good, but the fit between main parts such as the fuselage and twin jet engines a bit lacking. The seams are not as nice as I would like, but modeling filler worked well in most cases. Once complete, as painted in gray and shown in the image on this site, I was quite pleased with it. It now is suspended from the ceiling and compliments Battlefield 3 playing – note flat black painted wingtips. A great kit to get back into building models again, albeit more work is involved from the modeler to remove gaps and improve realism. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
