A-10C Heritage Hawgs

No. 48-275
Scale: 1/48
MSRP: $15

Numerous heritage paint schemes have adorned USAF fighter aircraft over the last few years. These have been done in support of promoting unit heritage and moral. The ANG, Reserves and Active Duty force painted these three unique, temporary schemes.

The 405th FS scheme celebrates the 75th Anniversary of their squadron and replicates a P-47 scheme from Western France in 1944.

The A-10 Demonstration Team scheme pays homage to POW/MIA personnel from the Vietnam Conflict. This scheme will be on the jet for the entire 2021/2022 airshow season.

The paint scheme on the 303rd FS is from 2019 and their jet was painted with D-Day invasion stripes in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion.

There are enough markings on this sheet to build all three jets. There is also dimensional information provided to mask and paint the invasion stripes on the aircraft.
