You forgot to thank ME!..

If it wasn't for me, you weren't going to be at the Top Gun show last year and weren't going to see the small A-10 and fall in love with it and hence Your wife wouldn't be posing with something that is bigger than her

I should have been on top of that list.

How detailed are you going to make it?
It's going to have panel lines and rivets, weathering, and a full cockpit and pilot. I already have the pilot. But my plans are to first build the plane and fly it in primer to get any bugs worked out before I start on the paint and detailing. The cockpit and pilot will be installed in the beginning for C.G. reasons.

That looks awesome!

It's funny how pictures with women in them always get more views than pictures of planes.

We seem to have run out of the really big, wow, huge, massive, enormous sort of words. Thought Ivan's A10 was pretty big, but that is wellll... err really, REALLY BIG (run out of imaginative descriptive phrases so typed it in caps )

Hope you got a big trailer Good luck, wish I could be there with a camera on the maiden

Life begins at transition
Given all the words for "big" have been used, there's only one thing left for me...



Can't wait for this to develop!

7 percent more efficinecy x2? lol Also just a guess, but I bet longer flight times due to lower load and higher maintainable speed at lower throttle setting.
