1/48 Academy F-22A Raptor

Gallery Article by Eduardo Natal on Jan 25 2010


I just finished this one. It is fully loaded with Legend Cockpit Set and ALL available Eduard PE sets. It includes all exterior panels, bomb and missile bay, jet exhaust, etc. Still a plastic kit category despite of it's new weight (heavy right now). It was a fantastic assembly thanks to Academy's injection. Painting had to be done using home made lacquer paint once it was impossible to do any further surface finishing due to PE panels.

Bomb and missile bay PE were tricky to build. All doors are PE and have lots of details.

It is a pleasure to share this kit. Everything is brand new and with excellent quality.
