LHX Stingbat Stealth Helicopter Concept (1989)
About the Design
In the 1980s, Hughes and other American aircraft manufacturers investigated concepts for the construction of radar-evading "Stealth" helicopters. Testors combined many of the ideas then under development -- including a faceted composite exterior, scimitar-shaped blades and a propeller-less tail -- to create this conjectural design.
About the Kit
The third and final conceptual Stealth aircraft that Testors released in the 1980s (The others were the F-19 Stealth Fighter and the MiG 37B "Ferret"), the "StingBat" was released only once before disappearing from retailer's radar. Today it is the rarest of Testors' stealth troika.
This model was built from the one and only 1989 issue.
