NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a 1/48 Plastic F-117A Stealth Fighter from Academy Plastics.
It's for ages 10 and up.

The F-117A is built mostly of aluminum and some titanium. The flat
angles, or facets, are designed to reflect radar everywhere except back to the
transmitter receiver. The stealth is also covered with Radar Absorbent
Material (RAM) to help ward off radar detection. The F-117A is powered by two
General Electric F404-GE-F1D2 engines and carries all weaponry internally,
the most often used being the GBU-27A Paveway III Bombs.

FEATURES

Plastic pieces attached to sprues and molded in black.
The surface of the plane is decorated with fully engraved panel
lines and sleek anti-radar details.
Highly detailed cockpit interior, landing gear, and bomb bay.
Flap/aileron assembly is accurately reproduced.
Armament includes one GBU-27A Paveway III bomb that fits in the
fuselage and attaches to a detailed bomb rack.
Clear plastic canopy allows close inspection of cockpit and may be
Modeled in an open or closed position.
Detailed pictorial instructions guide you through assembly.
