1/72 Italeri F-117 Nighthawk stars and stripes

Recommended Posts

Hello again!

 

First one in the Christmas WIP, the one that started it all as a mojo restorer...

 

 

A very quick build over a week or so, only a dozen parts-ish. Pilot from revell nato/us set. Stand came with the kit.

 

The lowdown - grey stynylrez, then mr hobby black and white, both gloss. Decals on the paint. Few details touched in and stripes touched up. AK interactive ultra matt on top and satin on lowers. 

Top looked too bland so drybushed (how 90's) some dark grey on the edges, re-varnished and looks a bit better. 

 

All in something quick and easy that I didn't take too seriously, and restored 'the mojo' B)

Colorful.....from one side :)

I do not like this plane, but your model is nice representation of the type.

The Stars and Stripes improves this kit. I've done the Airfix version and was, well, underwhelmed by it. 

 

Youve made ace a boring subject interesting :goodjob:

Nothing wrong with a technique that works, as your model proves.
