Paul, I would for sure be a taker for the A-10 forward fuselage, really excited that you will be tackling this.
You are probably already aware of these pics but I always thought the top views would come in handy for getting the contour of the A-10 nose right:

What I get to see routinely, Michigan ANG A-10C's working the training ranges at Camp Grayling located in northern Michigan.

Thinkin' effort spent should also be invested in making it A-10C so it can also be a conversion.
Let the buyer go for backdating if need be.

Can you elaborate on the changes that would be required ? I am still gathering data and knowing the differences going in would help to make that a possibility.

Basically the vertical sides of the nose from the windscreen forward should be flatter.I'm sure somebody will elaborate farther.

Without reading all of this thread, asking if you have either of Jake Melampy's A-10 books?
Besides photo coverage, he has good info. including differences. The majority of changes to C
are incorporated in the fuselage forward of where Trumpeter split it. The wingtips and tip of tail have
changed sensors/antennas as well. not everything mentioned, but those are the areas of interest.

The shape of the nose is incorrect forward of the windscreen, the canopy and windshield have the wrong angle where they mate when closed. Vents and antennas are wrong for the more modern time frames, 1991 onward I guess. The vents are not particularly fine either, and need a lot of work to look nice on the model.
Chuck did a stellar job in fixing his, but it involved a lot of sculpting.
