One of the most iconic weapons of the Cold War are the aircraft. The A10 is my personal favorite. The only way I would have joined the Air Force is if they would have guaranteed me to be an A10 Pilot. They couldnt, so I joined the Navy and became a Civil Engineer Corps Officer (Seabee)
The Battlefront A10 model is top notch. It is easy to put together with minimal clean up on the ordinance. I cant wait to play this on the battlefield.
On the Soviet side is the small and sleak SU 25 Frogfoot. Such a small craft with a powerful punch. Again great model, it took quite a bit of time to clean up the ordinance on this kit. I picked the 357th squadron as the model for the camouflage pattern.
US Rotary aviation is the Battlefront plastic model kit of the AH-1 Cobra. This is a very well done kit and I like it better than the original BF resin Cobras. I went with the plain Jane US Army appearance. Even today the Blackhawks dont really have many markings.
Saving the best for last. The Mi24 Hind. I remember this beast from the movie Red Dawn in the 1980s. I was so enamored by it that I made a lego version as a kid. Overall this model looks great, but sucks to put together. I had issues with the rotor blades and the cockpit. Hopefully, version 2 of this model improves upon assembly!
