Build models for Edutainment, Education and Entertainment combined. It's true, building a model with your kids helps their conception of engineering, plan reading, construction methods, aviation history, aerodynamics and more. These F117 Stealth Fighter models demonstrate the advancements in aviation technology and are the perfect airplane for an educational toy. Watch a stealth fighter movie while you are building your models.
The modern stealth airplane is defined as a plane with a low radar return signature. However, another unknown stealth factor is that the internal electronics produce a very low emission of radio frequencies. To further understand this type of emission, you can test this yourself by taking a hand calculator or a camera strobe and holding it near the antenna of an AM radio. Flash the strobe then listen to its recharge on the radio or play with the calculator and listen to the logic gates switch on and off. These are radio spectrum emissions. Military aircraft design engineers go through great lengths to squelch these types of emissions.

There was a secret stealth design, read more here placed on the anti-submarine aircraft or World War 2. These aircraft would search for submarines by flying patterns at low levels over sectors of the ocean, the enemy sub lookouts would be able to see the airplanes up to fifteen miles away. This may sound strange, but the solution was to place landing lights all along the leading edge of the wings and turn the lights on. This would hide the airplane by matching the amount of light emissions from the airplane to the amount of light from the normal background brightness. Instead of having the submarine lookouts see a dark object on the horizon at fifteen miles, the approaching airplane would not be visible until it was three to five miles away. With this short range of detection, the submarine was not able to dive before the airplane was on top of the sub.
One radar method of detecting modern stealth airplanes is very similar to the way the submarine lookouts of WW2 were able to see the airplanes at the fifteen mile distance. The airplane at fifteen miles blocked the background light making it visible as a black dot on the horizon. A modern stealth airplane reflects so little radiation that it also appears as a dark object to the radar because it blocks the background radar return. Luckily this only works with very highly sensitive radar's that are more sensitive than the usual enemy radar.
