Am I the only one who sees an F-22 in the picture above?  I thought this was about the new F-35 Kit ;)

 

..However painting an(y) aircraft in Turquoise and poop brown doesn´t do much for its appeal - but that may be just my opinion :D

think you are right, it does look like an F22. Now you've created a whole new debate. I'm happy with the turquoise, looks similar to the Russian cockpit colour however poop brown will spiral all over the place from hull red to RAF dark earth because poop brown isn't an official FS or BS colour  :D

I like the Deft aquamarine stuff that's replaced the irridescent & lemon hexavalent chromium alloy treatment on fast-movers, but I'm waiting for an F-35B to do in mint choc chip.

Sorry Italeri, sorry Trumpeter. You can try making an F-22 to get my money.

thanks NewtonK, these schemes are much better than the standard, appreciate you finding them, they are an improvement over the drab grey.  Unfortunately, to my eyes, this aircraft is just plain ugly, it seems so out of proportion. It's just such an unappealing looking plane to put on my limited shelf space. Hoping that those who love it find the kit a good one.

You better praise the Lord...or US DOD for dumping the Boeing XF-32 :D

oh my, I forgot about that one - now that is double ugly - looks like some bizarre love child of a F-22 and the trailer from an articulated lorry !!!!  It does make the F-35 look more acceptable !

Actually, with the jutting out lower inlet fitted (a la Su-75 Checkmate) I thought it a fascinating pudgy little delta winged fella. 

(Come to think of it, I'd go for a Trumpeter 1/32 Su-57 and -75, but would genuinely relish an F-22 and F-35B.)

 

I hope the F-35C sells and encourages more releases of modern subjects. If cash reserves were deeper I would get this kit as it looks to be a fun build.

The Achilles heel of this and other stealths is that they , like Ford T,come in one boooring color :doh:

It might be an interesting challenge to reproduce the shiny graphite-like finish accurately. 

Personally, I'd like to do one as a Blue Angel or in gloss scarlet with Naval Missile Center drone markings.
