Description

 

This is the 1/144 scale DML F-117A finished in the U.S. flag paint scheme that was applied for a special ceremony on December 14, 1983, at Groom Lake, Nevada. The flag was immediately repainted black after the ceremony.

I used Cutting Edge decal sheet 72120 as reference for this project, reduced to 1/144 scale. The underside of the model was painted white, using Tamiya acrylic flat white followed by application of masks for the stripes. The model was then sprayed Tamiya acrylic flat red paint.

All stripes were covered in order to apply Tamiya acrylic flat blue paint. I dry brushed crushed yellow chalk for exhaust stains using kids sidewalk chalk from Walmart.

Star decals were obtained from two Superscale 1/72 F-82 decal sheets, 72-183. Vertical stab markings and Skunk works log decals are custom Alps decals by my good friend, Sunil Gupta.

Cockpit tub was completely scratch built. I used Areoclub ejection seat.
