Designed to meet the U.S. Military's requirement for a multi-role Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006. This single-seat fighter is one of the most advanced aircraft of our time, said to be four times more effective at air-to-air combat and eight times more effective at air-to-ground combat than any other existing aircraft. This 1/72 scale, die cast model from Hobby Master recreates the F-35B Lightning as flown with the RAF in England, 2019. Features include realistic panel lines and surface details, opening canopies, intricate interiors, interchangeable landing gear, authentic markings, and a display stand. 8½" long.
