Good morning everyone. A new series of the 1/144 t SVAN MAS series kit will be available soon, with a slight upgrade of some setup parts. The occasion will also be good to provide a small packaging with the necessary for the realization of the gunboat version of this series of MAS. With the pieces contained in the modification pack it will be possible to create both the simple version, with the only change of armament and the most particular one equipped with protection against the shotgun shooting of the front cockpit and the helmery, which was used on Lake Garda vs Austro-Hungarian naval and land goals.

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.
