Hi Anton

Can you provide the dimensions for fixing the pylons when you send them out please. I look forward to getting my hands on a set.

Thanks, Alex

Was curious. Are those struts casted or machined and bead blasted? Seems they would be much cheaper to cast with all the detail, over machining them. I am thinking about venturing in on doing some aluminum casting but am thinking it would not be quite as strong as to being machined. Maybe im wrong. Nice A-10, keep up the good work.

The struts are CNC machined from billet 7075 alloy block then sand blasted. They are very strong but can not be made cheaper than casted.

Thanks Likai. I tried to have mine machined to work like the real plane but no machine shops around here wanted to touch it. To much time invested into fixtures i am guessing and not enough money in it for them, even though they wanted to charge an arm and a leg. I guess you have to be really into the hobby. I guess i will have to resort to casting with lost wax method or just having some simple 3d printing done for detail. Great! another learning curve.

thanks

Wow.. thats allot of parts. Thanks Anton.

Is there any chance that I could have 2 pairs of the Maverick missiles? I am not a big fan of the multiple rocket launchers.. I always had the feeling that they looked a bit small for my old A-10, and if I could replace these with a pair of mavericks, then great.

Regards Al
