A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog)

The A-10 is awesome! Designed for close air support, the A-10 can linger for hours, take a huge amount of damage, turn on a dime and punch holes in a tank like it was a tin can with the 30mm GAU-8/A Avenger Gatling gun.

Being a big fan of the A-10, this was the first model I started and the 3rd one I finished. Over time, I can definitely see that my design skills have improved. Even so I think it turned out to be a good looking model. Maybe someday I'll get around to a version 2.

Angling the wings made the model quite fragile and it would break almost every time my 3-year-old would play with it. My 5-year-old, on the other hand could succefully "fly" it around the house without any problems (meaning no pieces fell off and no enemy aircraft shot it down.)
