    Thunderbolt (Picture Heavy)

    Hello, So I've been wanting to do this for a long time now, and its really my second attempt. This one came out much better than the previous one. The engines are stolen from an A-10 kit available at Hobby Lobby for around 20 bucks. The weapons are off the IG heavy weapons sprues. Everything else is 1/16th inch Balsa wood. Hope you enjoy!

    All it needs now is rivets (hundreds of them) and paint.
    And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

    Not bad at all! Proof that scratch built is an excellent alternative.

    I agree with CBrate, it does need alot of rivets and it will look really authentic, but overall yes that is amazing

    Nice work, but I think the engines would look better flush with the fuselage. Great overall regardless.

    I just put my scratch built models under my pillow and pray that the rivet fairy will come in the middle of the night and put rivets all over my model... I usually just wake up with a headache and broken model though...

    Search your local hobby shops for some styrene rod of the appropriate width for rivets (1 millimeter? less?), and slice it into as many thin, rivet-like pieces as you like. Apply glue and attach. Simple, if potentially maddening.
    We've got plenty of youth... How about a fountain of smart?

    lol, thousands of little tiny bumps of green stuff, great work, although the engines look a little big, but maybe not. Is that balsa wood?

    This is very cool, the smooth wings and engine casings give it a different look than the bulldog nosed FW model, the engines being moved to be flush with the body sound good though.

    And he said it's balsa wood
