Well hello! 🍓 Let's build that beast! This is my second model in this scale and after the B-2 in 1/72 - everything in it looks ginormous. 🙂 I somehow found out after the B-2 that the bomber planes have a slightly different structure and shape from the jetfighters, and i liked it too.... in a different way, but still i like it a lot and that's how i decided to build the Nighthawk. This F-117 kit is giant. It has metal landing gear, PE intake screens, rubber tyres and canopy with thin flat sides - almost like windows with no blurs or distortion whatsoever, while the decals are only a few: This is what i got for the improvement of this yet high-quality kit - the AFV Club's canopy with anti reflection coating from the inner side, the unused in my F-15E model tyre+wheel set by GTR, and a piece of PE screen for the sensors. I only need to get a pilot figure. So, the landing gears are first and i'll start them these days. I plan to make the model in 2 modes again - inflight and parked. With everything that can move - moveable 🙂 but in full stealth mode so the antennas, the RCS enhancers and the lights will not be added. That's it for now. Thanks for following along!
For me this was the longest time between starting and finishing a project. I started these in the late 1990's and just finished up the last one this week. Except for the gray markings on one, all the markings are custom dry transfers since the Alps didn't exist when these were built. They're small, but they make for a unique display when gathered together.
