Lockheed F-19 Stealth Fighter Concept (1986)
About the Design
Not to be outdone by its rivals at Testors, Monogram responded to the unprecedented success of that company's F-19 with its own version of the elusive Stealth fighter. (In fact, Monogram bought the rights to the use the name "F-19 Stealth" from Testors!)
Monogram's version was even more low-profile and bat-like than Testors' model taken from a Loral Industries illustration. Yet turned out to be just as inaccurate once the real Stealth was revealed to the public.
About the Kit
Monogram released this stealth design in both a traditional 1/48 scale glue kit and a 1/72 "Snap" version (sans landing gear). The 1/72 kit was also released in a "glow-in-the-dark" version.
