The F-117 Nighthawk was a single-seat, twin-engine stealth ground-attack aircraft formerly operated by the USAF. The F-117A's first flight was in 1981, and it was acknowledged and revealed to the world in November 1988. It was commonly called the Stealth Fighter although it was a ground-attack aircraft, making its F-designation misleading. The Air Force retired the F-117 in April 2008, primarily due to the fielding of the F-22 Raptor and the impending introduction of the F-35 Lightning II. Kit consists of over 290 parts on 11 sprues plus fuselage, rubber tires, positionable wing flaps, numerous loads, detailed engines, cockpit and gear compartment, metal landing struts and a photo-etched air duct grill. Paint colors needed: Aircraft Gray, Khaki, Flat Black, White Insignia, Silver, Burnt Iron, Tire Black, White, and Olive Drab.
