Description

Up for sale is a brand new 1/72 USAF FAIRCHILD REPUBLIC A-10C THUNDERBOLT 81-0976 (HA1330) by Hobbymaster.

¬†Although the A-10 can carry a considerable amount of external weapons, its primary one is the built-in GAU-8/A Avenger autocannon. One of the most powerful aircraft cannons ever flown, it fires large depleted uranium armour piercing shells. It is a hydraulically driven seven-barrel rotary cannon designed specifically for the anti-tank role with a high rate of fire. The cannon’s original design could be switched by the pilot to 2,100 or 4,200 rounds per minute but this was later changed to a fixed rate of 3,900 rounds per minute. The gun is accurate enough to place 80 percent of its shots within a 40-foot (12.4 m) diameter circle from 4,000 feet (1,220 m) while in flight. This aircraft was based at Incirlik in Turkey.

This model air-plane is made from die-cast metal and include extensive detailing. It is similar in quality to Aviation72, Oxford, Corgi, Century Wings, Witty Wings and JC Wings.
