1/48 Tamiya F-117A Nighthawk - Final Verdict

Recommended Posts

Here is the Tamiya F-117A Nighthawk. Bought on a whim and about half way through I was wondering why. The orginal idea was to try and tackle an All Black subject (something the Wallabies didn't do last night) :D 


There is a small write up of the build on my blog but for those not interested here are some images

I have never had much interest in this aircraft even as its existence was starting to be known while I was living not too far from the "remote location" in the desert  where it was based.

Probably because I always thought that it would not be easy to replicate the finish realistically .  I believe you have done an awesome job of capturing the tonal variations with this build.

Kudos to you!

Great job! Really nice work with the paint modulation. You've given the monotone finish some personality. If I ever build one, it'll be the grey bird, just because I like to be different:




I have to admit that a flock of these things does look like an alien invasion...
