I think this post should go to "Postwar Aircraft Project".

     You can probably do a Google search for Testors Italeri MiG 37 Ferret E & find most anything about it. Probably find several model kits on eBay.

I bought that model kit in the early 90's and I still keep it unmounted. Gery if you want scans from the box art or the instructions just send me a PM.

Regards,

Antonio

BTW, Mr Gatial produced a very beautiful Ferret art that was available to download some time ago. I'll try to find it on my HDD

Testors actually filed patents for the design, which included schematics.

but it made a real impact , Pentagon threw a fit , there was a high level investigation by American lawmakers and McDonnell submission to ATA programme was depicted as a grown Ferret for a while .

The Ferret is definitely my favorite when it comes to fictional aircraft, I remember building the model kit back when I was 12 years old. Unfortunately, I botched the paint job on it and gave it away to a friend. I wonder if anyone has done an aerodynamic study on it, to see if it in fact is a viable combat aircraft design?

I've always found it funny that the Ferret model seemed to have more in common with the actual F-117 than the F-19 model did.

Does anyone know how Testors came up with the design of the fictional MiG-37B "Ferret-E"?  Did they hire an aviation engineer or analyst to come up with the design?

Surely someone on these forums has remarked on the suspicious similarity between Testors' "MiG-37" and the Northrop YF-23, revealed a couple of years after the kit first appeared?

The Testors kit was released in September 1987 and the F-117A Nighthawk was first unveiled to the public in November 1988. I remember that the kit became a hit because of its uncanny resemblence to the unrevealed F-117A.
