With so many unanswered F-35 Lightning II questions that a computer simulation couldn't solve it was deemed necessary to build two full-scale models. These fiberglass and aluminum models were completed two years before the first test F-35 flew. Since stealth was the key factor to the F-35's construction it was necessary to test the aircraft's antennae in different locations and varying angles. The F-35C model painted similar to the VF-103 Jolly Rogers was placed high on a pole to test if the larger wings and slight airframe difference would impact the antennas.

    Posted by on 28th Apr 2020

    Another great bird which was released by HM (Hobby Master). The Fighter comes along with different missiles, bombs and 4 different cockpit glazings. A very detailled model from a freat company. A real precious in my Jolly Rogers Collection. Thank you Aiken's for another great plane from your store! Ronn
