Dave Flitton Watching what you will do with this one
21. February at 06:44:29
Ferenc Sarka I found this kit at my brother in law's cellar. This kit is more than 20 yesrs old. The building instruction is missing. I didn't find that on the web yet. So if anyone has the instruction plese help me. Thanks. After i finish the cl-415, the Black Widow will be the next one.
21. February at 13:41:08
Cuajete Hi Ferenc. Italeri and Tamiya's YF-23 are the same tool. Maybe you can use the instructions that shown in the following site:

it took me all morning but i think i got the shape just about right, just need to find some intake cones,
a pair of F-16 droptank halves will do nicely i think.

Maciej Bellos I'll be following this. Ari, do you plan to build all four demonstrators?
04. March 2016 at 23:49:33
Aris aka Amen :) Hello Mathie, i was thinking to build 2 of the 4 contestants (pav-1 yf-23 and one yf-22). But unfortunately i don't have a photo with the pav-1 along side the yf-22. (i have to do some digging on my files). So till then i'm going to build 2 yf-23 and one yf-22.
05. March 2016 at 00:54:51
Maciej Bellos There is this one, PAV-1 and YF-22 but unfortunately you need three engines!!!
[img1]
05. March 2016 at 20:47:16
Maciej Bellos Got another one! Without the engines:
[img1]
05. March 2016 at 20:50:46
Aris aka Amen Oh great! Thanks mate. I was wondering if they have flied together any time. This could save time making the bays and landing gears. Since the models has raised details i would spend much time there.
06. March 2016 at 01:02:29
Maciej Bellos I think I found a photo with the two of them flying together.
06. March 2016 at 11:57:15
Aris aka Amen Really? You are good at digging, thanks. So you think a can make a stand with just two of them?
06. March 2016 at 16:39:20
Maciej Bellos Yes you can make a stand with both, but unfortunately you will have to do PAV 2 (the one with the air superiority camo that the F-15s wear - Hu127 and Hu12 8). For example:
[img1]

The YF-22's regestration is N22YF.

So I might not be that good at digging, since you need PAV 1.
06. March 2016 at 17:55:58
Aris aka Amen :) That was the photo!? :P Anyway thanks for the color codes for the pav-2 and the searhing.

Ian Hunt I'm not into the "What if?" genre but always wondered what a SEAD aircraft with Low-Observable technology would have looked like. In "my world, this aircraft would have used passive sensors and equipped with Anti-Radiation Missiles and stand-off GPS munitions located in the internal weapons bay.
11. November 2013 at 04:14:57
Aris aka Amen Nice idea and thoughts Ian. Have you decided what camouflage it will wear?
17. November 2013 at 04:15:39
Ian Hunt Not sure yet - thought overall Gunship Grey as opposed to the two-tone air-superiority camouflage and a jet assigned to the 14th FS/35th FW which currently operates the F-16CJ/52(?)

Bill Gilman Not an easy kit to find. If this is the Italeri kit (most certain it is) then it's got a nice weapons bay that can be modeled opened. This was not an option with the Dragon (DML) kit that I have, unless I wanted to scratch build it! :)

Burkhard D I have both Dragon & Italeri. Interesting how they differ in shape :)

Bill Gilman I just had a look at a picture of the sprues from the Italeri kit, and it doesn't have a weapons bay. I wonder if I'm thinking about something else. Maybe the YF-22...or was there a third kit of this plane? Man, I think I'm getting old. :) :)

Burkhard D The Italeri YF-22 has a weapons bay :)

Dave Flitton Which has the better shape?

Burkhard D I'll check versus photos on the weekend, again. I seem to remember that I've done that before and that Italeri won, but I have no recollection of the details anymore. :)

Bill Gilman Yeah, I think you're right. Italeri wins on shape and having a weapons bay, but Dragon wins for having recessed panel lines.

Bill Gilman I really wish this one had won the contract, it's much more sinister looking.
