This is great. You should build a f-32 which was the aircraft the f-32 defeated.

Your dedication to moving features just like the real thing is to be commended. I was always sad that the YF-22 beat out the YF-23.

Awesome creation. I think the USAF really regrets not using the YF-23.

Lovely Black Widow II. As much as I love the F-22, this is just such a nice looking aircraft. I've wanted to build one for some time, but never got around to it. Also, it was planned to carry 6 missiles. 5/5.

The bestest and most awesome Black widow out there!!!!!....Also I don't know if the YF-23 had only 4 missiles, but I think you should have added 2 more. 9.9/5

Hi. This creation is just awesome. My favourite plane. If I want to build "Black widow 2" so the same as you built, do you still remember if what lego parts should I order and hom much. I don't have any of the parts yet so I would need to order all the parts. Do you also remember how to build it? This is my favourite plane, so I want to make it the same ways as you did, because it just awesome :D If you can help me, thanks in advance :) Another awesome creations! :D

Excellent work. The details are fantastic and everything is included. The weapons bays are neat, with the Sidewinders easily discernable from the AMRAAMs. The red hourglass from the prototype is cool too.

Quoting Niko Adamopoulos cool thanks. Im making a grey f-23. I think the wings are perfect on your model, mine are a little too long. Is the brick The WINDSCREEN 4x3x3 W/sharp edge?
Niko, yes it is. If you want to see how I made it work, let me know & I'll email you the procedure using pictures off of LDD.

Quoting Niko Adamopoulos OH My gosh that is awesome!!!!! What is the front portion of the canopy? Where can i find it?
Niko, I got it from LEGO's front end loader model (bought the $12 model just for the windsheild) or on LEGO's web site(Pick A Brick)

Just got the replacement parts from LEGO to redesign the weapon bays to make the missles look like they can fall straight out, instead of hitting the door hinges on the out. Copied them off of my F-35B. Had to redesign the intakes to make them work, but they also look more like the ones on the actual plane size wise.
