Lockheed F-35B Lightning II VMFA-211 USMC 1:72 Model

In September of 2018 VMFA-211 was deployed aboard the U.S. Navy Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Essex. On the 28th of September an F-35B carried out a strike against Afghan Taliban. This marked the first time a U.S. F-35 Lightning was used in combat when it delivered a precision-guided bomb. The aircraft wore the name Lt. Col Chris “Otis” Raible on the side under the cockpit to honor the former commander of VMFA-211 killed in Afghanistan in 2012. Later in 2018, mission markings were applied to F-35B 169415’s front landing gear door.

The Lockheed F-35 Lightning II is a fifth generation multi-role fighter aircraft that combines radar evading stealth technology with supersonic speed and extreme agility. The three variants of the Lightning II are the F-35A, B, and C. The F-35A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant. It features two internal weapons bays and six external hardpoints for mounting a variety of weapons under the wings plus an internal 25 mm cannon. The F-35B is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant while the F-35C is the aircraft carrier-based variant. The F-35 was developed to replace the U.S Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon, U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet and the U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8 Harrier II.

The F-35 Lightning II was first flown on December 15, 2006 and is entering operational service with the United States military and the air forces of several other nations that were partners in the development of the aircraft.
