Theorycrafting an A-10 Model Loadout

Thinking about picking up a 1:48 A-10, but all the stock loadouts in the kit are... kind of boring.

 

Kit: https://www.amazon.com/Revell-1-48-A10-Warthog/dp/B0006JNS54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1474503323&sr=8-1&keywords=a-10+model+kit

 

Comes with 2 BLU27, 8CBU-52, ALQ-119, 6x AGM-65 on 2 TER, and External Tank

 

So I am thinking about buying a weapons kit:

Hasegawa Aircraft Parts A: https://amzn.com/B0017TFH0Q

(Armaments include: MER, TER, Mk.82, Mk.82 Snakeye, Mk.83, Mk.84, BLU-27 Napalm, SUU-30 Dispenser, Mk.20 Rockeye, SUU-20,Dispenser)

 

So my idea is to do this, using hardpoints:

 

1. ALQ-119

2. BLU-27

3. 3x AGM-65 on TER

4. 3x Mk82 Extended Fuse on TER

5. 3x Mk82 and 3x Mk82 Snake Eye on MER

6. Reserve Tank

 

(repeated across except #11 is empty)

 

Thoughts? I really want an AIM-9 rack on #11, but that'd be an parts kit of 60 missiles for 2 missiles and a rack. <.<

What Luna said. Revells are nice kits and all, but nothing compared to Tamiya aircraft kits. The 'pits are usually very nice and not really in much need of replacement (although it helps) and the ordinance is of a great selection (but I have no experience with the Tamy A-10 - just my general experience with Tamiya kits).
