Inspiration for this build was the "Empires Lost" series by Australian author Charles S. Jackson and the venerable Matchbox A-10 kit. The kit has been built straight OOB with the exception of weapon load which consists of 16 X 60lb rockets and 2 x 1000lb bombs from the Trumpeter Wyvern and decals from the Revell Vultee Vengeance.

Now that looks great, LOVE the white tail.  :thumbsup:
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I have an Aussie A-10 in the stash but it doesn't look anything like that! Very clever!

I have a Matchbox Warthog in the stash.  Never thought of doing this to it though.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Yup, yet another of my favourite schemes, along with the classic S.E.A.C.
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.
