Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Mitsubishi F-1 90-8227, 6th Squadron, Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF)

1:72 Scale.  Length: 7".  Wingspan: 5.5"



Limited production of approximately 800 models worldwide


The Mitsubishi F-1 was the first Japanese developed and built supersonic military jet. In 1978 the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) began to replace their aging F-86 with the first of 77 Mitsubishi F-1. In 1981 the 6th Squadron (Hikotai) became the third unit to be outfitted with the aircraft. The F-1 was utilized until 2006 when it was replaced by the Mitsubishi F-2. When F-1 No. 90-8227 was retired it was sent to the JASDF Air Park at the Hamamatsu AB in Shizuoka Prefecture where it is an indoor display.

The Mitsubishi F-1 is a single-seat attack aircraft that evolved from the Mitsubishi T-2 supersonic jet trainer. Its primary task in the Japanese Self Defense Force is anti-shipping with an air-to-air capability. The F-1 entered service in 1978 and production ended in March 1987. A total of 160 aircraft were planned, but only 77 were built. The F-1 had several upgrades to extend its service life. The F-1 has slowly been replaced by the F-2 and upgraded F-4EJ "Kai" Phantom II's.
