This kit was built
straight out of the box. This is a fun kit but not a really superb one looking
at detailling. I followed the colour codes from the Revell 1/72 F-22 kit and
added some metallic colour ( Revell 91 ) to these colours so there is a little
shine on the aircraft. Because I could not find any other decals for this kit, I
still used the original even though I know the colours do not match. Still
I think I made something nice of this kit.

A few front pictures and
one of the outer lines which was a lot a work for the brushing, but which
look really nice.
I believe the
Raptors used nowadays don't carry weapons under their wings but the kit said to
put the bombs under and the missiles I had from another kit I put on just
because I found it nice looking for this kit on display ( I don't really care
about realism that much, model-building is having fantasy ) just like the
inside of the missile bays are done with a bit fantasy. Still I hope you enjoy
