Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II – 168719, VMFA-121, U.S. Marine Corps, MCAS YUMA, Arizona

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

Lockheed Martin F-35 BuNo 168719 made its maiden flight on October 24, 2012. On November 16, 2012 the aircraft was accepted for service as VK-01 and in January 2013 it was assigned to VMFA-121 “Green Knights” based at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona. For two weeks in May 2015 168719 along with four aircraft from VMFA-121 and two from VMFAT-501 carried out the first phase of shipboard operational testing on the USS Wasp. This marked the second time F-35s operated from an assault carrier.

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 of the aircraft.
