Updated

This is updated artwork for the F-23A illustrations I did for Scott Lowther's APR article. Ogami mushashi had noticed some errors in the top view of the F-23A, so I finally got around to updating it. All views were updated. I'll probably do some updates for the NATF as well. I added the side profile comparison update as well.

It's okay, I guess, ... if you're into artwork of beautiful aircraft...

Thanks for sharing!

Not bad at all!!! Interesting to see the curvature under the belly compared to the flat YF-23. Also of note is the inflight refuelling receptacle in the wing root!

Cool Stuff indeed.
Hopefully this will invigorate the community to get around and finish a 3D model ;)
There're three but true none of them are free to use. You have stuka's one, Tommow (tommow.deviantart.com) and Citrus90 ones.



Nice work sundog, i wonder if you didn't mistake black kite for me? I did point to you few mistakes on the original drawings (especially the nacelles alignment) :)

You are correct, sir. I've updated the original post.

Just an FYI, the first image was recently updated. There was a highlight error on the upper forward fuselage spine that has been corrected.
