Trumpeter 1/32 A-10 Warthog
This is actually a fairly easy kit to build. The main problem area is the fuselage – I had to use a lot of filler. The canopy is not accurate so I bought a vacuum-form replacement. However, I couldn’t make the canopy resin parts work with he canopy so I opted to use the kit canopy.

The load out is unrealistic but by weight (12,664 lbs), it is plausible given the maximum load out is 16,000 lbs.
