Fujimi 1/72 scale F-35B Lightning II

The clever alternate doors and engine open up a wide range of display ideas for this model kit, but the lack of some details will have some modelers putting in more time to enhance them.

Having built Fujimi’s excellent F-22A Raptor, I was expecting a repeat performance with its new F-35B kit.

I got some of what I expected. The highlights included fine, shallow recessed exterior detailing and an excellent rendition of the engine and lift fan of the novel STOVL version of this new aircraft.
