1/48 VMFA -211 F-35B "Wake Island Avengers"

Recommended Posts

This is my next to last build for the VMF(A) -211. 

I had custom markings created for this aircraft as it belonged to the Commander.

I loved the RAM Decals from WOLFPACK...These were absolutely perfect

This was a very well engineered model and defects were self induced.

I didn't have the heart to load up the wings with racks. So I left her stealthy.

I have completed the Wildcat,Skyraider,Skyhawk,Harrier,and the F-35B.

The CF markings are a Little large on the tail but not detracting.

Very sharp looking bird! Sort of breaks the mold though for the rep of Marine "hand-me-down" equipment; not unlike when they got the Corsair much before the Navy did in WWII! Congrats on a great looking build! Looking forward to the F4U!

NICE!  Whose kit is that, that you used, KittyHawk?

Talk about a Tranformer plane...everythings moving on that one.

Love the markings.
