Well a nicely done F-117 stealth! The kit is Hasegawa, and relatively easy to put together. As a side note, I tried going near one parked on the tarmac at the Burke Lake front airport at the cleveland air show a couple of years back! The SOB Airforce or marine sentry guard didn't let me get close to it, or let me take a picture! :-x :-x apparently it is still pretty much a secret project :confused: :confused: Anyway here it is built OOB:

We had an F-117 fly over on the 27/28th for the boatraces in the Tri-Cities. You can NOT hear the thing from the front. I just happened to look up and see it flying slightly above canyon level along the Columbia River about a mile out, just a black boomerang shape getting bigger and bigger until it passes by and THEN you hear the jet engines.

Please do! All modelers' pics are welcome, from first time modelers to long-time experts! I need to find somebody with a digital camera so I can post the development of my modeling skills, from afternoon projects without paint to the museum-quality ones I do today!

Looks good, nice job.

I believe the F-117s have a highly toxic coating on them.

Welcome to the forum, Chang!

What kinds of models hold the most interest for you?

I used to be really into models. Had a couple F-14's, F-15's, and F-4, F-16, F-22, F-23, AH-64, RAH-66, UH-1, and UH-60. Also had a couple HMMWV's. Once I got my first call for the IDF I stopped though.

That is a magnificent F-117 model. The paint job and gluing is flawless. Kudos!

I wonder where lulldapull's been...

We need to get him back here to post more models :)

Agreed, I'd love to seem more models. I have an SR-71 Blackbird and a P-51 Mustang that I've had waiting for me to build since last December. The only problem is finding a decent hobby shop around here. The Wal-Mart hobby aisle just does not cut the mustard.
