Here is my finished F/A-23B, in production US marines service.The aircraft is a direct replacement for the F-18 legacy aircraft, and is fully multi-mission capable. The aircraft is cleared to carry Maverick, Penguin, HARM, Harpoon x, and all current LGB and GPS guided munitions.

That camo looks absolutely wicked on the airframe really.

Cheers for that Simon, :cheers:
As soon as I did the colours on the Tigershark, I thought to myself, I need to use those on something stealthy. I think a U.S Marines F/A-22 in the same colours could be on the books soon. :wacko:

Beautiful job, Chris - and the camo pattern is very appealing! I always found the F-23 to be sexier/cooler/more vooom than its ugly sister, the F-22.

My thoughts also Frank, the F-23 is certainly the better looking bird out of the two.
