[The mechanism of the new generation stealth aircraft is spectacular] It was developed based on a plan to consolidate various tactical aircraft operated by the US Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps into one type of aircraft and its derivatives, and deployment began in 2011. The versatile fighter is the F-35 Lightning II. Among the three types of F-35s developed, the F-35B for the Marine Corps is capable of short-range takeoff / vertical landing (STOVL) with a rotary engine nozzle and lift fan. In addition, a weapon bay that can store weapons inside the fuselage and a radar wave absorption sheet are adopted, and it has both high-speed performance of maximum speed Mach 1.6 and excellent stealth. Following the United States, United Kingdom, and Italy, the F-35B was decided to be introduced by the Japan Air Self-Defense Force in August 2019. As the world’s first supersonic STOVL machine, it is expected to demonstrate high responsiveness. This F-35B is modeled on a 1/72 scale that is ideal for collection. Not only the sophisticated and smooth form, but also the mechanically attractive appearance at the time of takeoff and landing has been reproduced with a rich sense of reality.
[Model outline] F-35B plastic model assembly kit. ★ 1/72 scale, total length 217 mm, total width 150 mm. ★ Realistic model of the advanced appearance peculiar to stealth aircraft. ★ The engine nozzle is assembled so that it faces downward, and the lift fan air intake and auxiliary air intake can be opened or closed. You can reproduce the state at the time of short-distance takeoff / vertical landing. ★ A wide variety of weapons such as GBU-12 laser-guided bombs are available. ★ You can choose to open and close the canopy and bomb bay door. ★ The pattern of the radar wave absorption sheet expresses the main part with decals. ★ Includes 1 Tamiya pilot doll and 2 US Marine Corps markings.
