Hi there.
At last, both of my great favorites have been completed and now they are very close to each other and I hope you enjoy it.
Goodbye.

Man they look awesome..

It really puts into perspective the wing area of both, and of course relative size. Would love to ave seen a true bubble canopy on the YF-23A. I like the look of both, however the YF-23A still takes the cake. It looks beautiful and lethal in the way the F-14 did IMO...

Gorgeous, both of them.

In particular, the rear of both aircraft. I especially like your work on the YF-23A "troughs" engine exhaust. Looks more like the real thing, than the real thing LOL. How many hours would you estimate it took you to build/paint each??

I'd have to agree, mad skills here. Very impressive...

I particularly like the two tone camo on the F-22, and the outstanding cockpit detail. They look like the genuine article, and I only wish I had the skills and patience to build the same.

BRAVO!
