This is Hasegawa's old 1/72 A-10.  I recall buying the kit in early 90s and having found it in my stash, decided to finalize this project.

Even though being an old kit, standard Hasegawa quality for its scale.

I experienced almost no issues of fitting etc. The only exception to this was the wing joints. I had to spend some time and putty on the wings. Apart from that, it was a joy building this oldie.

I did no gold plating, hence building it OOB. No extras, no PE etc..

Before giving the final coat of "Tamiya Flat Base+Future" mix, I washed the kit and the panel lines with artist's oil for a dirty look.

Last but not the least, the glossy effect on some of the pictures is due to the lighting. The kit has a semi matt finish.

Enjoy...
