Default 1/48 Hasegawa F-22

Hello, here are some pictures of my latest model. It started out as a factory roll-out scheme, but I changed it to an operational version in the middle of the build. Aim-9x is not realistic, nor have I seen a blue Aim-9L on a Raptor, so all is fictitious. Hope you enjoy. All critiques and suggestions for improvements are welcome.

How did you recreate the "Raptor sheen"? It looks very convincing - as does the rest of your model

Very ice build bro. I think the finish is spot on.

Thank you very much everybody, I appreciate it. I tried to replicate the raptor sheen using a mix of Gunze acrylics and Citadel metallics. I mix them about 70-30, and then thin the mixture with Tamiya X-20A. Citadel seems to thin well with that. I also did some pre and post shading, which is not visible in the picture below.



I had to strip most of the paint and restart from scratch, where the shading is more discernible. Also, in the final version, I ended up not using FS36320, but 36270 (H306) for the light gray. For the dark grey, I used a mix of H305 and Citadel.
