YF 22





Here are some images of Testors 1/32 scale Lockheed YF 22 Rapier prototype. There seems to be this ongoing debate of which is the better looking aircraft the YF 22 prototype or the F 22 Raptor. When they release a 1/32 scale F 22 I'll let you know. The one thing I noticed about this model was the lack of cockpit detail. I suppose in the 90s when this model was released the cockpit detail was classified. The F 22 is supposed to replace the F16, F15, F14, F18, and the F117 which in the long run saves the U.S. Airforce a tidy sum but due to the brain dead stupidity of the Obama administration with its shutting down of the F 22 program that doesn't look like that will be happening any time soon.

Indeed - It's the precursor to the F 22 Raptor.
