Just finished reading the whole build thread in one sitting. Truly amazing what you have accomplished in a relatively short amount of time! Getting a welding rig and learning to use it will be very high on my list of priorities once I get to my next station. BTW: the A-10 is a beast! I've always loved that platform. Went the Navy route, myself. Been in for 9 years including almost 3 years of flight school and I'm almost ready to get my wings. Been a long road, but totally worth it. I hope you can get back to flying regularly soon!
