Half Track I like that you make your models to suit your fancy. As experience grows you will become even better- heck it is only a model and you have only yourself to please. That said, it is good of CAC to offer suggestions and advice and most importantly that you accept them in the spirit they were given. The P51 is a beauty. The paint looks smooth and covers well. The construction looks like a P-51. You can be pleased with it. The A10 as a "snap together" kit is more problematic. You have a less than an ideal type of kit to work on. But you kept at it and it ends up looking like a Warthog. Though with the engine pods and the gaps at the wing root, it may be mistaken for an A10 needing some serious down time at the local depot maintenance base To dust your models look in the computer section of any big box store for a can of compressed air (used to clean keyboards) and go the the 99¢ or $ store and pick up a makeup brush or two. They have various sizes and there is one that has a big soft bristles just great for keeping those small parts attached when cleaning. Looking forward to your next model. Don't forget the only bad question is the one you didn't ask.
