Yep. It used to be that most defense contractors were pretty lax about their designs, but over the past few years they have become exceptionally protective. A number of plastic model companies have been sued over even WWII vintage designs. Even though the US government buys F-22s, the actual "look" and design is patented (and copyrighted and trademarked) by Lockheed Martin... etc.
