Hobby Boss 1/48 YF-23 Black Widow II
This has been one of my favourite designs since I was a child. I had fun building this and tried a few new ideas like tinting the canopy and colour variation on the heat tiles in the exhaust. This was also the first kit I used pre-shading on. The canopy tint is very thin copper and Tamiya smoke layered up until I was happy with the effect. I think it works quite nicely. It was too big to fit in my display cabinet so it was wall mounted next to the 1/72 Valkyrie.
