This is the Air Force's primary close air support aircraft. The model is a Hasegawa 1/72nd scale kit, built pretty much, right out of the box.

I used pencil for most of the panel lines. A few modifications were made to the cockpit, and I liked the idea of the using the tiger striped tail flashes for the "Flying Tiger" squadron.
