This modeler grossly overdid the weathering on their A-10. It looks ridiculous! You'd never see a plane this dirty in the real world:


LOL yep. That one is being used. Live weapons are live. Double sidewinders, and bombs on the small side... I'm guessing Syria.

No time for "hog wash" apparently... Ill get my coat


SORRY EDITED WHEN I MEANT TO QUOTE :-[

Yes, she's seen a lot of combat!
It's obvious the Air Force doesn't have mad and ugly CSM''s/RSM's - "why is your aircraft covered in carbon pilot ?????"

You know, Greek roundels would look right at home on an aircraft that grubby...

^ Hehe!  ;D

Greek A-10 is a neat idea! So many sweet camo options: Aegean Ghost, Asia Minor, SEA....
Cheers,

Interesting choice that the grey colouring continues to the topside of the wings. The wing edges did sometimes have Medium Green splotches over the OD base, but Neutral Grey I don't remember seeing except on the bottom, was there an actual scheme like this on a plane/Squadron/Group? (The Jug units especially in Europe seem to have had a multitude of alternate schemes, some even using RAF colours, so wouldn't be out of place at all - I'm just curious.)

Interesting article of what the A-10 could have looked like:  https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/13329/early-on-the-a-10-warthogs-legendary-gun-was-both-a-blessing-and-a-curse





Could be interesting to model up an operational one just to confuse people especially when you pull out the real world photos.
