These pictures were taken last year, but I wanted to show them. The cockpit ia from the Aires 1/72 F-15E. I cut it in half and it matched the YF-23 layout. The rest is handmade the old fashion way.

That's the work on the canopy, I plan to put the handholds and mirrors from the Aires F-15E.

Good work. Instead of starting a new topic, you may consider posting replies to only one of your yf-23 posts (the way I am doing here). This way, your progress will be self-contained in a single thread.

Looks like a lot of work, but it will look really good in the end. :(

But maybe you should have made one thread, and posted all pics there? Also, it would be better if pics were not thumbnails. ;) (at least most people have decent connection here)

As you know the big fanboy of YF-23 i am, i will follow this one. :thumbsup:

PS: I forgot, are you doing PAV-1 or 2? I think i remember you said PAV-1, but i might be wrong...

You should keep your build under one thread, otherwise it will get spread all over Hellls half acre, and won't make any sense.

Very creative approach to the cockpit! I was planning to use the PE set from an F-16C.

BTW, please consider putting your entire YF-23 build into a single thread. It will be easier to follow and comment on your progress.

As an admirer of the YF-23, good work to date! I do agree with the others that one thread would be better to track and post the progress.

How do I merge these posts? Lee

You dont need to merge anything, just dont start new topics. Just post the pictures here in this thread, in the reply.

I hope I have this figured out. All I have to do is add. Here is the landing gear work.

I'm continuing to work on the YF-23 Weapons Bay. I've got the acess panels on the top of the bay almost done. First I cut out a paper model to check the fit in the model. I adusted the scal so that it fit 1/72. More later.
