Gorgeous Pat! Super clean model! All those little 1/72 scale stripes on the ordinance must have been a real treat! LOL! If you hadn't said anything about the pilot seat location I wouldn't have noticed. And no sign of where the canopy fit gave you trouble. As my old boss used to say, "It looks like it grew there"! I really like this one a lot!

Thanks, Tory. Looking at lots of pictures, I get the impression the Guard units that fly these Hogs keep them spiffy. As for the ordinance, I wish I'd kept track of time that went into bombs and missiles and racks specifically. It was quite a bit, as I'm sure you can imagine. Many tiny holes drilled and metal pins installed. As I told the guy that asked for it, when the A-10 first arrived on the scene, I swore I'd never build a model of anything so ugly. Interesting how time can mellow one's view. Even reverse it.

I’ve been stopping by occasionally for years Pat. Always worth a look and it’s great you’ve kept it going. Love the in-flight builds, something more modelers should try.

Thanks for the visits, Greg. Sorry the new posts have gotten fewer and farther between, but I'm not cranking them out like I used to do. Still plugging away, though. In fact got another in-flight job finished and imaged needing to be added to the collection here. Stay tuned!
