MiG-37B Ferrett Soviet Stealth Fighter Concept (1989)
About the Design
The Soviet counterpart of the American F-19 Stealth, the MiG 37B "Ferret" combined a faceted airframe design with cooled exhausts, a radar-absorbing skin and sophisticated electronic countermeasures to remain virtually invisible to Allied radar. Purely conjectural, the design nonetheless turned out to be closer in shape to the actual F-117 Nighthawk than was Testors' own hypothetical F-19.
About the Kit
The enormous success of its conceptual F-19 Stealth kit prompted Testors to create and release this Soviet Air Force version two years later. Although not nearly as successful commercially as the F-19, the MiG 37B "Ferret" was nonetheless re-released by Testors' European sister company, Italeri, several years later with new box art.
This model was built from the original 1988 Testors kit.
