1/144 Northrop Low-Altitude Penetrator (1979) B-2 Bomber Alternative Proposal - Fantastic Plastic




1/144 Northrop Low-Altitude Penetrator (1979) B-2 Bomber Alternative Proposal - Fantastic Plastic

Before the B-2 "Spirit" stealth bomber design was finalized in the early 1980s, two separate mission profiles were  studied. One was high-altitude penetration, the approach that resulted in broad-winged stealth bomber we all know and love today. The other was for low-altitude penetration. This approach called for a more streamlined, arrow-like airframe.

Although never formalized, Northrop and Boeing studies from the period suggest what such a Low-Altitude Penetrator (LAP) might have looked like. The plane would have been less efficient than the B-2...but no less beautiful and intimidating.

1/144 SF-260 International Trainer - Heroes Models


1/144 SF-260 International Trainer - Heroes Models

Ready to assemble resin model in 1/144 scale with clear resin canopy and canopy masks.
Silk print waterslide decals for 6 aircraft used as a trainer.


The SIAI-Marchetti SF.260 (now Leonardo SF-260)[4] is an Italian light aircraft which has been commonly marketed as a military trainer and aerobatics aircraft.

The SF.260 was designed by Italian aircraft designer Stelio Frati, while production work originally performed by Milan-based aviation manufacturer Aviamilano. On 15 July 1964, the first prototype performed its maiden flight (then designated F.260). Shortly thereafter, responsibility for production was transferred to SIAI Marchetti, who had purchased the rights to the design; manufacturing continued to be performed by this firm until the company was bought by Aermacchi in 1997.

The SF.260 has been largely sold to military customers as a trainer and light combat aircraft. In addition, there have been limited civil sales to private operators; during the late 1960s, the type was marketed in the United States under the name Waco Meteor. Armed military versions, sold as the SF.260W Warrior, proved to be popular with smaller air forces, which could arm the type for use in the close air support role. Both piston-powered and turboprop-powered models have been developed.

Price: 20,00€ TAX included
Available: July 2020

A kit of the SF.260 "Warrior" with armanants is also planned.
