The Flightline (Finished Projects)  - 
 
The N/AW A-10 of mine is finished.
It was surprisingly quick and in a way easier than what I expected. Still I made some stupid mistakes with certain things, like the decals.

Feedback's welcome, as always :)

In Progress Pics  - 
 
Bombs done, painted, installed and varnished. Then I had an idea and went for a bit of wire-mangling. At least I think it was a good idea.
This post is two days late as I just haven't had the time to share :s

Also: the post's name is a horrible pun, don't pay attention to it if you want to stay sane :p

I spent a long minute pondering on what kind of armament I'd hang under the belly of the warthog. First I thought that just a couple of the smallest bombs would work just fine, for a test flight. But then realized (in time fo...

Sorry 'bout the one-member spamming :)

Decals done. Or at least those that survived. Things were going surprisingly smoothly until I got to the wings and then ruined a couple and was missing a good bunch of "no step" decals from the left wing. Also: should've done what the big boys always yap about - varnishing before applying the decals. Live and learn and swear a lot meanwhile, that's how I roll.

I have never, ever liked decals. I still don't like them. And I don't think I'm going to like them in the future, either. Cut, soak and paste To ensure the best and least annoying (to myself) result I cut each of the decal p...

Rear fins got fixed (only about three weeks since they were pointed out to me) at last. Or to be more accurate: the right-side fin was straightened up.
Then I washed the whole model with Vallejo's grey wash (for dark vehicles) and the steel-coloured surfaces with some overthick Citadel's black stuff. 
As a surprise turn of events I also got an idea for the weapon loadout. Maybe it'd look slightly more interesting with a couple of practice bombs instead of nothing at all.

Tail fins I guess it's now a couple of weeks since I got told that the vertical stabilizers weren't straight. On the eve of the Model Expo I attacked the left tail fin and repositioned it straight. I guess I got it supported ...

Had I remembered (or thought of) it, I would've done a clear/satin coat before the decals. Maybe next time :)
