help identify this plane


First off, yes i know it's a A-10, I am looking for other details like the CG and what manufacturer sold it.
I believe it was a kit and not an arf, by looking inside i can see someone took a long time to build it strong, but they kept it light, every joint have gussets or been Fiberglased.

wingspan 55.5 inches chord 9 inches.

length 47 inches from spinner tip to tail.

Non retractable landing gear .
It's a 3 channel plane, elevator, aileron and throttle with a steerable nose wheel.

It has a old style OS max .25 in the nose that looks to have been never ran.

Any and all useful details would be happily accepted.

Could this be it? The overall dimensions are off by an inch but it looks close. Whoever built yours went to a single engine in the nose vs twins in the nacelles

that sure looks like it, and the soda bottle nacelles are a perfect description for them.

I think I differ in opinion. The nacells are different.....the nose art decals look like Pica designs. Not sure of Mfg or scratch built is my thought.......I'd like to have it though.
CG is probably close to 1/3 of the wing chord.

i'm sure your right on the CG, but being the paranoid pilot i am i'll be plugging in the specs into one of the Cg calcs available online, just in case.

That is the A-10 from the linked MAN plan. PM Flyinjrc74, I sold him an airframe a couple months back, he has a blog post on it and a video.

The plan calls for 2 .049 TeeDee Cox engines in a pseudo DF arrangement - aka "fan in a can". I believe I still have a set of the pullout plans in my stash if you need the CG.

If you have access to the plans right quick Hemi, can i get the CG from you?

I have the hog fully prepped and ready to fly this afternoon but i'd like to double check my CG against what the plans had.
