  1. Hi All, My first WIP, and to be fair this one's been 'in progress' for quite a while. I've finally figured out photo posting, too -Thanks Bullbasket, I'm loving Village Photos! My Mojo for the build has been restored by this brilliant (as ever) Steve Ginter monograph, written by the guy who flew this gorgeous but ultimately doomed prototype. Bit of a double edged sword tho as I now have a shedload of really good photos and drawings of the thing (that will all have to be faithfully reproduced, so says that nagging little voice!) Anyhow - the short
  2. Dragon is to re-release soon its 1/72nd Nortxhrop/McDonnell Douglas YF-23 Black Widow II kit (link 1 & link 2) - ref. 2507 Source: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10594440 Box art 8 V.P.
  3. And so 2018 begins with a kit that has been in storage for nearly two decades... a rare 1/72 Italeri YF-23 I bought this kit when living in the US during my high school years or shortly thereafter, so circa 1996-99. The kit is dated 1994 so it was relatively new back then. This was my second foray into modelling and first "serious" attempt, this time with an airbrush (a Paasche single-action). However, I didn't actually start this kit until many years later, around the mid-naughties, but I only got around to painting the cockpit. Since then, the kit had been stored in a box somewhe
  4. Hello Chaps First finished model for 2014! Last year I only finished one model. I said this year was going to be better so here you go... My attempt the YF-23 1/48 from Hobby Boss, fascinating aircraft by the way. Carcal decals and Vallejo paint, primer and varnish. 11.5 hour of pure fun, spread over 5 months . Nice and easy kit, comes together like a dream, not filling required. The surface detail is a bit in the fine side to my taste but other than that, no complains. The mirrors are the only extra. They came from an Academy kit I think. Hope you like it. The pictures: YF-23 1 by
  5. Hi everyone, I'm Tim and a newcomer to this excellent forum! Received my latest addition to the stash this week and wanted to share my progress building this large anhd beautiful modern(ish) aircraft. Not my usual cup of tea (I'm mostly into Cold War British and Russian jets) but I think you'll agree, this is one good looking aircraft even in boring low-vis colours. The kit will be built OOB, except for a replacement ejector seat (Aces II correct me if I'm wrong) by Aires or Pavla. Am also hunting for the excellent Caracal decals sheet, so if anybody can help, please please PM me! I'll be t
  6. At N├╝rnberg Toy fair 2013. 1/48th Northrop YF-23 Black Widow by HobbyBoss ref.81722 Source: http://www.primeportal.net/models/thomas_voigt7/hobby_boss/ V.P.
  7. Well before I completed the F-84E, I did these. The YF-22 and one 23 were strip-downs and repaints of kits first built in the early 90s. The dark grey 23 has decals from the Dragon kit, bought specifically for them. The details - The YF-22 is the Italeri kit with Airfix decals. All the original kit was still in one piece, I just removed the u/c, added a bit of filler, and the nose probe from the Airfix kit too. Both YF-23s are the Italeri mould (one from a Revell release). Not too much weathering on them but the decals on the dark grey one silvered quite badly. The YF-17 is the Anigrand tooli
  8. To those (anybody?) eagerly awaiting the follow up to my earlier on of the British protoypes in January apologies for the delay. I got involved in designing a website for the local branch of a national charity. With that, the P1040 and spring finally appearing in the garden the follow-up took a back seat. Anyway I hope you like them but first a consumer warning. Some go back a long way - hopefully my modelling skills have advanced in the meanwhile John First the Americans Douglas D558-I Skystreak Anigrand resin, not the best of kits.
