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.

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