1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – Lockheed Martin F-35 (F-35I) Lightning II "Adir" 116th Sqn. IAF - Israel – Length: 8.5" Wingspan: 6” by Hobby Master
This model is single seat and includes a pilot figure. The cockpit can not open. The landing gear is optional, one can select to display the landing gear in its extended position or to cover the wheel wells as in the inflight position. The pieces for the landing gear are such that when the landing gear is extended, the bay doors for the weapons compartment are also opened and displaying the internal weapons which include 2 medium bombs and two AA missiles. A display stand where the model can be attached for display is included. The stand is made entirely of metal, it is very sturdy and it is held together by a nut/screw assembly. The wheels can roll freely and are quite smooth (so be careful where you put this thing, or it could roll downhill). The fuselage is all metal and really quite heavy.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
