Description

Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II F-001, Royal Netherlands Air Force

1:72 Scale.  Length: 8.5".  Wingspan: 5.8"



The first international partner involved in the F-35A Lightning II project to receive this new stealth fighter aircraft was the Royal Netherlands Air Force. Their first F-35A has tail code #F-001 and was assigned USAF serial number 09-5008. It made its inaugural flight on August 6, 2012 and on July 25, 2013 it was officially handed over to the Dutch, with the first flight by an RNLAF pilot taking place on December 18, 2013. The RNLAF are expected to purchase 85 F-35As.

The Lockheed F-35 Lightning II is a fifth generation multi-role fighter aircraft that combines radar evading stealth technology with supersonic speed and extreme agility. The three variants of the Lightning II are the F-35A, B, and C. The F-35A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant. It features two internal weapons bays and six external hardpoints for mounting a variety of weapons under the wings plus an internal 25 mm cannon. The F-35B is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant while the F-35C is the carrier-based variant. It was designed to replace the U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon, U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet and the U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8 Harrier II. The F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006 and is scheduled to enter operational service in the coming years with the United States military and the air forces of several other nations that were partners in the development cost of the aircraft.
