    And after gluing the 2 halves: And from the fuelage side:

    Wings - thinned. Here is how much i reduced the thickness from the wing toots: Cut:

    +1! Awesome pics!

    Rudders - extended. Tail fairings - trimmed:

    Having in mind that this kit is the size of a typical 1/32 scale kit, the price is actually quite decent. And most of all, it`s American!

    The edits from the upper fuselage: the engine area is extended from the second point for extention - right at the start of the leading edges of the rudders. The nozzles only are moved slightly inwards after the extention. The curved tails on both sides of the nozzles are ... changed fondamentally. The engine nacelles are angled. And there are plenty of other edits too... Some overviews with the YF fuselage: Aaaand.... not the prettiest sight, but it`s the F fuselage. :)

    Hi, congrats for starting this monster in such a scale! Btw, i could recommend to cut the ring behind the cone that blocks the view inside the intake. I built it in 1/72 and check out how it is possible to see through the intake down to the compressor blades:

    ahhahah, yeaah, they got that hidden charm shrouded in mystery... :P

    Jackpot. This is a lovely boxart and design! http://www.moxdao.com/thread-47411-1-1.html

    Btw, this overlay is my own interpretation of the changes that should take place. Otherwise i use the original drawings at the yf-23 website and the Ken Scott`s visualizations for F-23A (i posted somewhere above the exact one from where i took the upper-fuselage view and the profile view). I trust mainly these 2 sources to make the conversion.

    A-ha, got you! The prototype version`s aerial refueling receptacle is located on the centerline behind the cockpit. While the F-version`s receptacle is re-located above the wing - somewhere right inside the divergent cone inside the intake. And respectively the slipways are re-located also. ;)

    I don`t understand what are refueling slipway doors... (spillway?) Maybe it comes to the 4 elyptical recessed things next to the MLG doors? Cause the refueling receptacle is on the humpback behind the canopy.

    A wonderwul plane! I think you are gonna display it with an open canopy, otherwise the fit of the canopy is something to consider improving. I also noticed some slopes with rather noticeable edges right above the pointy edges of the intakes... is it like that in the real plane or it is a flow of the kit? Happy painting as well!

    And here is that area after changing these rugged shapes, plus the nose and tail area separated for further reshapement according to their upper parts.
  15. F-23A Black Widow II

    It`s pretty ugly right now, but, yeah.... hopefully it will become beautiful when finished. I have a whole new pack of Tamiya Putty coming on the way. :P So here are some edits of the intakes from the fuselage side. The YF model had relatively angled intake lips and quite steep slopes of the transitions with the fuselage:
