1/48th N/AW & A-10A Thunderbolt II
Models of originally single seat fighters/bombers converted to tandem seats may have more appeal. The A-10 follows the path. Hobbyboss' N/AW A-10A is a good model. The optional extended flaps and air brakes add much to the dynamics of the model. However, the cockpit is pretty basic and I had much trouble with the fit of the canopies.
I often build older generation models given that the completed new generation model left behind ample spares or additinal attractive camouflage schemes. Here, I built the venerable Revel/Monogram kit using ordnance and the Vulcan muzzles from the Hobbyboss kit. The Revell kit is very basic and has raised panel lines. Yet, it looks like a Thunderbolt especially with the full ordnance displayed.
