Trumpeter Wildcat


Recommended Posts

In short : the very early (i.e. first production batches) -4 kits were seriously flawed, and sold mostly on Asian markets. The US importer managed to get retooling done to correct the serious shape errors. So, in theory any US- and European-sold -4 version should be Ok, and among their best.

No issue whatsoever to fear with the -3 versions, whether early or late.

Would have been nice if Trumpeter would go back and re-tool some of their other major kit flaws.  A-7 Corsair’s come to mind as their worst.  Looking at my build using the Zacto correction vs. an out of box kit build is a real eye opener. 

I keep reading that the A-10 also has front fuselage issues. Too wide?  Paul Fisher was working on a correction when his world fell apart.
