Caracal Models CD72148 - A-10 "Warthog" - The Early Years

Our "The Early Years" series continues with a 1/72 scale sheet that transports us back to the origins of the 'Warthog' : the iconic A-10 Thunderbolt, a ground-attack aircraft that has seen service across various battlefields and is loved by infantry for its close-air-support capabilities.

Before its unparalleled combat history began, the A-10 had a lengthy development process and has undergone various modifications and test versions. We proudly offer several marking options, covering its prototype stages, early production variants, and some of the unique test configurations.

Much dedication and extensive research have been poured into this decal set, which not only includes markings but also comprehensive stenciling, allowing enthusiasts to authentically recreate any one of the provided options. Please note that the A-10 prototype had significant differences from production jets, and building an accurate replica will require conversion work. In 1/72 scale, the older Matchbox kit is generally accepted to be the kit closest to the prototype.

  • YA-10 71-1369, first prototype
