Scalemates 5th Generation, UAV, and Stealth Groupbuild 2021

To expand my collection of different generation fighters, there must be a stealth fighter, too. I fear the paint job of that model. So we'll see...

nice start, count me in.

Nice one, I plan to do the same kit in the near future. And I agree, the contrast dark/light gray looks a bit too strong for my taste. Not sure if the light gray is too light, IIRC the F-22 are quite dark.

Actually, the contrast can be quite strong, as I realised after a short web search...

Yes, that is what I noticed when searching for photos: it depends on the light, so sometimes the contrast is strong, sometimes less. But I will not mind that anymore now, it is done an it will look different when it is completed and set to better photo lights.

Thank you. I finished the model today and will now take some final pictures.

I found it difficult to get the surface as you can see it in many photos: probably around 30 different shades of gray and silver, depending on the incidence of light and the age of the machine. You could certainly put a lot more work into it, but that's enough for me for now.

If you look at the photos on the Internet, every jet looks somehow different. So there is not so much you can do wrong.😉

True, the newer birds looks relatively clean and well maintained while some older ones look heavily bleached and seem to have multiple surface panels exchanged. Awaiting the final reveal. 🙂

I think your model turned out great. The transformation of the intakes and cockpit were amazing. Congrats.

Somehow actually missed the final reveal, but wow, looks awesome! 👍👍 For the last picture I thought it was this way on the internet and not your model with a background, as your model fit so seamlessly with it's style. 👍
