This is looking superb bob ,a great build and very well documented too- very useful for anyone doing an A10 (like me when I do my Italeri 1/72), Ive often wondered what the old Tamiya 1/48 kit is like and now I know , its an oldie but goodie! looking forward to the next post , cheers tony

Cheers Tony. :smiling3:

Today I have mostly been applying decals. I've just given them a coat of Microsol so some still look a bit shiny in the pics.

There's a damn sight more of them than with armour! I think I'm going be seeing "no step" in my dreams. :tears-of-joy:

It's got a couple of small wrinkles but nothing that some more Microsol shouldn't sort out.

Decals have now been sealed in, and I finished painting up the ordnance.

Just got to paint the GAU-8 then I can get on with the weathering. :smiling3:

Sorry for the shiny surface, I haven't taken the wrapper off my new cutting mat yet. :tears-of-joy:
