He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
...
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

That model looks incredible.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Do I dare tell him he needs a light mist of transparent of gold on the canopy? That's the only detail I see missing. I think he's a glutton for punishment, but it looks amazing!

My only minor critique is that the IRST chin pod looks a touch too big to my eye.  Maybe its because I'm seeing in the 3D form here.  Still I WISH I could model like this guy.  I also wish there is a real F-23A kit someday!!

I keep hoping the 1/32 scale By Zactomodels ever gets finished.

Boy, the sheer skill and patience to do that level of detail requires a round of applause.  Beautifully done.
Yes I really have a domain called aliensporebomb dot com.

The way he was able to capture the metallic look of one of the early F-22s is amazing.
