$ 25.99

1:144 Scale  Diecast Metal  – Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk - Stealth Fighter – Length: 5.5"  Wingspan: 3.5”

 

This F-117 model is a single seat model and does include a pilot figure. The cockpit can not open. The model is in its inflight configuration. A stand where the model can be attached for display is included. The display stand has the model's info such as country, flag and scale.

 

The maker of the model, Amercom, really did a good job with the model, the diecast metal construction feels quite heavy. The metal seems to be more rigid and thicker than comparable 1/144 scale models. The panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring are done. 

 

These models come in what could be described as a disposable blister pack (sandwiched between two transparent plastic shells and then glued/attached to a piece of cardboard with the branding info. There is really nothing spectacular about the packaging, but at the end, the packaging is supposed to be disposable and with the sole function protecting the model, which it does very well.

 

Unlike bigger models, there is nothing to assemble for these models. All weapons and fuel tanks are already attached to the model. One just needs to open the pack and display it (or play with it).

 

The packaging labels these model as "Collectible Product" and "Not suitable for children under 14 years".

The Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk is a single-seat, twin-engine stealth attack aircraft that was developed by Lockheed's secretive Skunk Works division and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). The F-117 was based on the Have Blue technology demonstrator, and was the first operational aircraft to be designed around stealth technology. The maiden flight of the Nighthawk took place in 1981 and the aircraft achieved initial operating capability status in 1983.[1]The Nighthawk was shrouded in secrecy until it was revealed in 1988.
