This A-10 Thunderbolt II airplane is a replica wood scale model of the original USAF A-10A aircraft manufactured by Fairchild Republic. The A-10 Thunderbolt II was nicknamed warthog or hog. It is a single seat aircraft with twin turbofan engines, and was the only USAF airplane built for CAS (close air support). Ultimately 716 planes A-10s were built.
The Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II model is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
