Wrapping up the Warthog Project is a soothing accomplishment. I was worried the paint wouldn’t come out looking right and I am glad to say that I was completely wrong for thinking that. After the overspray dilemma, the hard edges concerned me. To me, they look pretty decent all finished. The weathering is what really stands out to me. It’s enough without being too much. I don’t want to say that this is my favorite out of the four recent A-10 builds but the snow scheme looks sharp on there.
So the build itself was typical Academy. Given the fact that this was my tenth A-10 build in five years, I’m pretty seasoned with the kits. The chin issue remains an across the board problem that I haven’t found a solution for as of yet. I’ll get it under control eventually. Other than that, I can’t complain. The finished kit looks great to me. I’m happy to add it to the shelf.
