    Username: Spherical
    First Name: Tama
    Category: Novice
    Scale: 1/72
    Kit: Revell\Monogram A-10 Warthog
    Accessories: Zilch, straight outta the box

    Finished this model in a bit of a hurry, so not completely up to scratch! (Hey Practice makes perfect!)
    Though overall I think this one went better than my last.
    Decals were pretty good for being made in the 70's to 80's, except for the shark mouth which I ripped because it wouldn't fit. So I ditched it! Leaving it with Blank eyes, which imho look pretty neat.
    Bombs were a pain, and now most of them have glue on them.
    Also Im pretty stoked at making a clear gun sight to replace the weird plastic thing that was up front.

    So heres the required shots.

    And now the extra shots!

    In the cockpit shot you can kinda see the clear sight I made. Im so stoked about it because I don't normally scratch build!
    Next you can see the open engine (without cover)
    And lastly the munitions, why wouldn't I have a shot of the most painstaking part of the build?!

    Cheers!! Its weird how the creator sees more faults in his work then anybody else (unless your a critic of some sort, because that's your job)

    Nicely done Tama and I see you found the info on the correct photo angles, but you’re a bit over the extended close date so not sure if we can include this in the final tally. However, let's see what the others say before making a final ruling.

    An extension to the extension. I'm OK with it, given that you hurried it up at the end.

    Nice one Tama, and it's ok with me - I keep thinking it's still Sunday, due tot the long (four day) weekend. Something to do with the Queen being Queen for 60 years I think - she didn't come to my 60th party, so haven't taken much notice of hers!

    Not bad at all Tama, I am in agreement with the other judges we've cracked the door open and you've squeezed in! :D
