Default Hobby Lobby A-10

http://www.lenger.de/cgi-bin/neu_web...d=851417_10370

this from what i hear this is set to be released in the near future and come with retracts. It's about time that someone came out with a nice looking A-10 thunderbolt that actually comes with the GAU-8 Avenger. This hobby lobby version sure makes the GWS version look like a turd. (not to mention the GWS version they forgot to add the most unique weapon that is found on ALL A-10 thunderbolts: the 21foot long gun that the plane is built around)

That looks great! I wonder how much the fully decked-out model will cost...

Its funny that most people don't get it that this plane was designed to carry the GUN.. not the gun designed to fit in the plane!

The ability to carry a buttload of Maverick missles in fire and forget mode was simply gravy on the turkey after it was already cooked!!!!

I hate 30 mill though... cans and cans of it stacked in buildings with rust all over the floor from the outside of the cans.. The Horror.. the Horror..

no doubt, the GWS version is stupid not it include the GAU-8 Avenger. I agree with you that this plane was designed AROUND the main gun and it was a MAJOR oversite for GWS not to offer it with their kit.

A A-10 without the GAU-8 Avenger is like a bi-plane with only one wing.

It is not coming with retracts. Mike Hines from Hobby Lobby made them himself on the prototype that he got.
