    I still think the F-22 is the better looking acft. But then you look at the F-117 and relize that looks don't count. I have the YF-22 from Hobby Model and the one from P-model. The p-model is a great build but some what to small for my hands. I still need to try the Hobby Model one again. The fit just was not right when I built it. May be after the the B-52D Arc Light build I might give it another go. Or after I finsh the B-1B. So many Aircraft so Little time.

    Where to buy?

    Where can I find the Hobby Model model in the U.S.? The two websites that I have done buisness with do not have them available. Found the p-model one, looks great and I would like to purchase it, does anyone know how to navigate around this site?

    best bet for the hobby model kit is Ebay.

    best site for the westerner to purchase the P-model kits is Joseph Spinali's website, www.e-papermodels.com

    Use Google.com's language tools to translate the page. There's a section in their mainpage's menu that is labeled how to purchase :D

    1 Yen is roughly equal to 1 US penny (usually a little less), so just as a quick rule put a decimal 2 spaces from the right of the yen price and you'll have a good rounded up guess at the cost. say 700 yen is roughly $7.00 US dollars.

    Sorry for the misinformation. I heard that they were going to retire them a while ago, but I guess that fell through.

    Ordering the pmodel version, looks very nice, over 300 parts, ohh and when I order the F-22, I will also order the A-10 and SR-71, also great looking models. Thank you all, for the help.
