Ok then, maybe an early Yellow Aircraft F22?

The YA is all composite.. that one looks to be foam cored wings tail... I can't remember who designed the YA F-22, but it could possibly be one of the very early prototypes from the designer.

Best bet would be to take more photo's of the airframe, as one doesn't help anyone see exactly what you have..

I to was wondering what inditification is?

based on the appearance of the main hatch...I would have to say its a Yellow. The hatch is half the size of the FEJ

thats the closest i can figure. the ducts and formers looked like it was to be d/f not a turbine model.
but all else it too close to YA ...

contact YA....Or who ever... maybe there is a product # or something embossed somewhere in the jet to confirm. They can tell you where to look

Its definitely NOT a Yellow Aircraft one.
The exhaust nozzle "points" are not the same, the panel lines and small hatch's/openings are missing.
The engine hatch is wrong (the YA one isn't square).
The canopy flange isn't the same.
No flaps, Wrong shape ailerons

while its close to a yellow.. i can ask... where is the yellows CG. and i have started to work on it.
Carbon fibered the landing gear plates(mains) and now have the retracts working. i will add the doors after a maiden flight.

the ailerons are hooked up ,rudders,stearing.
will need to do the elevators, getting the diminsons and making some foam cores, etc.
there are bearing blocks in the tail cones and servos. it looks as though it had an external control arm. thinking similar to a avonds f-15 or byron f-16.

will also make a foam canopy shape , then glass. i wil not worry about a clear canopy. just paint it.

made a base plae for the cockpit. will open it back up after the canopy is shaped.
also made a wire bow and made the other wing tip that was missing.
have some elevator blanks cut. will cut those soon.
