Spotlight Review

"Don't let the awful box art fool you!"
The box art looks like a third grader painted it, but the kit itself is very good. It is not as small as might be expected, since the YF-23 was a fairly large aircraft. Detail is good for the scale and the shape seems right. Decals are a little sparse. but again this is because of the scale. Mold quality is very good and everything fits. Beginners and highly experienced modelers alike can get good results with this kit. It is a good chance to add a rarely modeled aircraft at a bargain price.

"Nephew & Grandson"
Joseph (Oregon)
These are perfect Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers for a nephew or grandson. I build them with the neighbors kid but I feel these would have been perfect for my nephews back in the day. Look through their 1/144 section, get 5 kits for $20..perfect

"Kit OK, poor decals"
Could be higher with better decals. The model itself looks ok for this scale - right shape and 20 parts. But the decals are wrong. One reviewer already noted that there are not enough markings for both stabilators. So I thought I would buy 2 and use decals from both to make up the difference. But the national insignias and the US AIR FORCE markings are also the wrong color. They should be gray but mine are the color of brown mustard. Would only recommend if you can get better decals.

"Very easy but distinctive model kit of an unusual subject."
This small, very easy to build model really looks nice if properly painted and decals carefully applied. For the young modeler, the unpainted version wouldn't look bad. The model is tail heavy so, if you build the landing gear down, the nose tilts up as in a takeoff roll. A small, six-sided dice under the rear fuselage takes care of this issue and isn't visible to the casual viewer.
