G4F, that gave me a darned good laugh.

Now to serious,

While work on this, and many other, models continues I would like to see what your thoughts are regarding the potential final colour scheme should be.
Either the main colour will be Yellow or White.
For example, Yellow as in this lovely little 1/144 firehog that was seen at SMW 2010.





Or, should it be white like this little fella that I saw in Corsica in 2005.





I would realy like to hear what you think, mind you it may not help me much as I hate painting either white or yellow.

The yellow has already been done so I'd say white.

Slightly OT........
Having the chance to hang around the hawg during my AF days, I can verify that a A-10 with engines will sit on its tail without the gun/drum unit installed.  Rather abruptly if not careful.

Conversely, taking out both engines with the GAU-8 installed will make the nose gear move in ways it wasn't intended.  One motor removed is fine, btw.

Fear not Scooterman,
the back story as rumbling around in my fevered brain at the moment has an answer to all that, and it does not even include Unobtainium!

Sorry, can't resist a Full Monty quote!  :rolleyes: ;D :lol:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
