Recommended Posts

From the Tokyo Hobby Show, Tamiya just announced a new tool 1/48 F-35A.  Should be a massive improvement on currently available kits and with lots of potential international markings options, it should prove popular!  



1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit. Wingspan: 222mm, fuselage length: 326mm.
Realistically depicted Radar absorbent material (RAM) sections.
This kit can be-assembled with one choice of the three ordnance patterns – stealth mode, air-to-air mode, and beast mode. Ordnance parts can be-attached under wing.
Features realistic renderings of the following sections:
Weapons bay inside details including depictions of wiring
Engine nozzle, cockpit, and landing gear bays
Martin-Baker US16E ejection seat (multiple-piece design)
Ladder which extends from nose left side
Nose undersurface side details
Y- shaped air intakes
Engine nozzle (5-piece design)
RCS (radar cross section) enhancers affixed to top and bottom sections (two for each, four in total) during basic training exercises
Boxes stored in nose landing gear bay
Choose from open or closed weapons bay covers and canopy (the latter is interchangeable), up or down flaps, and extended or retracted boarding ladder.
Includes a realistically recreated seated pilot figure with Helmet-Mounted Display (HMD) and various kinds of ordnance: AIM-9X Sidewinder x2, AIM-120C AMRAAM x2, GBU-12 Paveway II x4, and GBU-31 JDAM x2.
Transparent parts capture sensor windows.

(Also, drag chute fairing component is-included only for the Royal Norwegian Air Force.)
