A-10 Thunderbolt
My brother's A-10 thunderbolt
About this creation
About the model
This is my brother's A-10 thunderbolt. I helped him build it, though it is mostly him who built it. We spent an entire day building this. It is My brother's entry to my attack aircraft contest. It includes a cargo hold aft of the cockpit. It has more ordinance than any other Aircraft built in my house.

Please don't grade the warthog on my building skills but on my brother's building skills combined(to a lesser extent)with my techniques

Info on aircraft (wikipedia)
The A-10 Thunderbolt II is an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force to provide close air support (CAS) of ground forces by attacking tanks, armored vehicles and other ground targets with a limited air interdiction capability. It is the first U.S. Air Force aircraft designed exclusively for close air support.
The A-10's official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt of World War II, a fighter that was particularly effective at close air support. The A-10 is more commonly known by its nickname "Warthog" or simply "Hog". As a secondary mission, it provides airborne forward air control, guiding other aircraft against ground targets. A-10s used primarily in this role are designated OA-10.

It looks like a fighter jet rammed in to a A-10 but the rest of it is good!

The small scale and the StarWars wings detract from the A-10 look somewhat, but this is an awesome little plane. Neat!
