Yugoslav Supersonic Project – Heller conversion 1:72
The YU Supersonic was the Yugoslav project with name: Novi Avion, related to project of light multi-purpose supersonic fighter aircraft. The program for the New Plane was started in 1986. All works on that program were interrupted with the disintegration of the SFRJ in 1989-1990. The break-up of Yugoslavia marked the end of the project. The new aircraft would be a single-engine lighter version of the Rafale aircraft with certain specifics. There was 6 proposed versions, some 4 finished as wind tunnel models.
This was very interesting initiative, used as base for forthcoming Rafale fighter project.
With help from one of my friend modeller, this prototype (what if) was finished converting old Heller Rafale prototype. Colors Model Master, decals Lift Here. Pictures are from phase before mounting MICA missiles and after.
I hope you like it, and thanks for watching. All comments.critics welcomed.
Best regards to all
