Im not sure how much traffic this page gets, but it’s probably worth a quick note. I was given a 1/48 scale A-10 desk model some time ago by a friend that was fortunate to procure the item while working as a liaison on the A-10 program in its infancy. I am just curious about this model’s rarity....contact me if you might be able to help, and thank you!
Thanks for the reply; mine happens to be the earlier (earliest?) type in light grey and what appears to be a 20mm cannon which was accurate of pre-production vehicles as the GE GAU-8A 30mm was not quite ready at the time FR had the airframe complete.
Not sure if this helps much, but there were quite a few of the Precise A-10s with lo viz decals and the camo paint; the more scarce models are the black 2 seat trainer and earlier light gray color A-10's. Production numbers are unknown.
