thanks for pointing out the error

 

Everybody has done it at some stage!

Wouldn't worry about it. In year or so's time, when you've built half a dozen more, you'll have lots of left over decals. Then you can just paint over it a replace it!

From one Ian A to another-well done mate. She looks great, and you've obviously enjoyed yourself and learned heaps as you've progressed.

Great work.

HI Hay your not the first modeler to get something wrong. I do it all the time. It's still a great looking model and you should be proud of it.

 

Texas :P :huh: :rolleyes:

Hi freddie

 

The nose hangs on, on the hinge they supplied. By the way that hinge is useless as the male to female part is to big for one another. I basically balance the nose cone on there hanging off of the radar. Embarrasing or what! <_<

 

Thanks for the compliments man, appreciate it. Now lets see some progress on yours.

 

Thanks

Ian :(

Hi Ray

 

Thanks very much man, I really blew myself away with this one. It has pride of place next to the TV! So now I have an F16 and an A10, though the latter is in 1/48. I am hunting down a 1/32 Warthog. As soon as I find one I will buy it. I think I will mainly be doing 1/32's now as I find them much more rewarding ( and slightly irritating :D ) personally, and enjoy the results much more.

 

Thanks again, and to all those who gave advice along the way, CHEERS!!! :P ;) ;)

 

Now off to the attic to continue the Tonka.

 

Ian :lol:

Trumpeter makes a 1/32 A-10A that is a detailer's dream come true. The thing is HUGE. There are also loads of aftermarket goodies available for that kit. It's not an inexpensive kit, but I know it's on my list to do one day. There were two stunning examples at the US Nationals that both had me drooling.

HI Oh that 1/32 scale A-10 would be a great kit to build. I have seen a couple at contest and there relly impressive built. Maybe we should have a 1/32 scale A-10 group build some time.

 

Texas :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

HI A 1/32 scale A-10 group build would be great if and when I ever finish this F-14. Maybe sometine about the middle of next year we can see how many of us are interrested.

 

Texas :D :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Keep a sharp eye out, I have seen the A-10's go for sheap on ebay and other secondary-market sites, or on the different Forum trade pages.
