Just finished!
Model from Hobbyboss OOB, painted with Tamiya and Gunze in F-22 camo. Finished with Tamiya paneliner. Hope you'll like it :)

Good work.
These always look to me like they've been sat on and then had the wings trimmed by a giant child with a pair of scissors.

<edit - wings dammit, wings.  Frakkin autocorrect>

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I always hate seeing models of F-23s, especially good models of F-23s.

They just go to prove the USAF chose the wrong aeroplane.  :banghead: :banghead:
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Really nice model. I like the look of the landing gear/bays.  :thumbsup:  I've got the same kit at home, but it'll be a long time before I get around to building it. Only thing that bothers me about the kit is that there is no open weapons bay.  :banghead:
I've heard that Zactomodels is/was planning to come out with a big 1/32 scale YF-23 sometime in the future. Has anybody heard of this and know any more information?
Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

Glorious build, so clean!!  Cockpit and gear bays are choice.

What scale is she??  I picked up an F-22 recently and I'd like to build one of these so they can sit together.

Good God.  I'd lose my behind if it weren't attached.  I sat there and read the title and forgot all about it by time I got to the end of my post.  :rolleyes: :angel: ;D

I believe the phrase, read here (can't remember who used it - possibly Scooter?), you should use is "i'd lose my testicles if I didn't have a bag to keep them in".

Looks great! Hopefully you had a better time putting the Hobbyboss article than the 1/72 Italeri.
