Hasegawa 1/72 F-35B Lightning II 'U.S. Marines'
The F-35B is the vertical / short take-off & landing (V/STOL) version of the F-35 Lightning II
Joint Strike Fighter, and is intended primarily for the USMC and other allied air forces.
This is a simple but well-detailed model of the F-35B that includes the fuselage lift fan and a tailpipe which is positionable to depict the aircraft in take off or hover mode. No any internal weapons bay details are included which makes for a simpler build that allows the outline of the F-35 to be displayed to good effect.
The decal sheet includes the RAM panels which should you decide not to mask and paint the different shade of gray to depict that detail.
A clear display stand is included.
Marking options for 2 aircraft are included:
- F-35B Bu. No. 169164 of VMFA-121 'Green Knights', USMC, CO's aircraft while deployed to Iwakuni, Japan in 2017
- F-35B Bu No. 168732 of VMFA-211 'Wake Island Avengers', USMC, CO's aircraft, USMC during 201
