I wish I could post some pictures buuuuutt....

This model is made in and sold from China. Surprisingly it has fairly accurate shaping with a bit of fine detail. The model is in 1/48th scale and is longer, in length, than an F-22 Raptor model of the same scale. This was a big fighter aircraft!

I bought my YF-23 from another website that rhymes "E-Shay", where it is far cheaper. I have been looking for this model kit since 1998 and could only find the tiny 1/72nd scale model from Testors. I'm going enjoy every bit of building this model. It would seem the Chinese understand that there are a lot of us who adore the "real winner", in the YF-23, and have wanted a good sized kit. I hope there's a 1/32nd scale model coming in the near future and maybe an American company can jump on that. There's money to be made here!!!

Do not buy.

Besides needing way too much glue, this model doesn't even fit together right. The Wings are too heavy to stay on even with glue. The tail sprouts don't fit in the back. It needs a weight in the front which would be fine if the front would stay together.

This is the only yf23 kit so I wanted to get it but it is the worst kit I've ever built. Because the doors to the wheels don't look good, nor do the wheels stay on well, I had to remove them off the body and make my own. The picture on the side of the box doesn't even use the same parts when looking closer.

Do not buy it unless you intend to scrap the instructions and end up doing whatever you can to salvage this terribly built model
