Wish I had thought of that but Iím beyond that point now. Iíll have to cut doors for everything.
I wonder if I can get away with fuel tanks under the wings? Weapons will all be above the wings.

Located a spare Navy style AAR probe in another kit. This will look good. I added winglets to the wing tips for ECM pods and a Sidewinder or two. Working on the wing floats too. Nose gear doors will be made from the piece I cut out to open the gear bay. Main gear doors will have to be cut new from sheet plastic.

Here are some pics showing the latest progress.
The winglets were cut from the fuselage left over from another A-10 kit.









The wing floats are from 1/48th minigun pods, parts of the Skyhawk's tail and Aves epoxie putty.



I'm really going to have to choose a paint scheme soon!

Winglets: Tricky! And they look very good! 8)
