From the website, "...the F-117 settles into a fast glide." I wonder, how fast?

In 1996, Estes planned to release flying version of the F-117 Nighthawk; it was even featured on the cover of the new products brochure that year. It never made it to market, but I always liked the design.

A few years ago, I went back to the original designer, Dave Meyers, and asked him to update it for NCR. Three years of hard work later, here it is!

It requires good modeling skills and a lot of sanding, but I suspect most everyone on this forum will be able to build it without a problem.

Ordered! This looks like a lot of fun.
