Default 4th gen A-10 by Mibo jets

I went over to Rogers today to look over the latest version of Mobo jets A-10 Warthog. I have been involved in gen 1,2,3, & now generation 4 this is the nicest A-10 kit that Mibo jet has done. I will try and list the differances between gen 3 & gen 4 .
1. The Fuselage for generation 4 is all new and the detailing is outstanding.
2. The turbine pods are new & have excellent detail & are for gen 4 only.
3. The wings are the same on gen 3 & 4.
4. The only change in the horizontal stabilzer is in the mounting. The elevator control horns have a slight change in them.
5. No change in the rudders.

I would say those are the cones that go infront of the turbines in the nacelles. Nice added detail.

Thanks for sharing Jimbo, it is very nice and scale indeed.
Beside changes which you had mentioned, is there any change in term of weight?
Btw, can those pods squeeze in P120 size turbine?

Cheers
Ernest

Hi

a couple of questions what is the unfueled weight and the waiting time from order to the door step.

I emailed the factory but I have not had a reply yet

Thanks Ian
