  1. Our friends at TG Decals have some new F-35 decals in the works for us, and this batch are all about the new Lockheed F-35, with the most up-to-date squadron markings and full set of stencils into the bargain. There are three sets, and they're broken down geographically, apart from the Carrier version - the B, which can go all over the planet on its floating airbase. Some quick pics for your delight Watch out for our review once they're back from the printers, at which point you'll be able to see them without the blue outlines of
  2. In Autumn 2020 Airfix is to release a quick build new tool 1/72nd Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II kit - ref. J6040 Source: https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-for-2020/quickbuild-f-35-lightning.html 3D render (so a new tool kit) V.P.
  3. Slightly late to the party - I wasn't intending to start this build yet, but I moved it up because for once I wanted to actually finish before the deadline! This is my first groupbuild entry in flippin' YEARS so I'm looking forward to it! Here's the much-maligned Kitty Hawk F-35B in 1/48: The kit has a poor reputation with bad fit at the top of the list. Let's see if I can beat it into shape! There's a lot of plastic in this - all of the weapons bays are capable of being displayed, and the lift fan and main engine nozzle are intended to be deployed in t
  4. The 1/72nd secret item from the catalogue 2019 (link) is a new tool Lockheed-Martin F-35B Lightning II - ref. 1425 It's Halloween today...

  5. Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II DIE-CUT Flexible Mask (D72001) 1:72 Galaxy Model - For Hasegawa Kit While the Hasegawa F-35B is a good kit, getting the painting right on the kit is a real challenge if you don't want to resort to decals. The set arrived in a thick ziplok bag, which saved it from the beating the envelope received during transit. Inside is a nice glossy cover sheet that provides additional stiffness to the package, and where they consider that not to be sufficient (such as decals), a further sheet of thick glossy card is also added to maintain t
  6. All fingers legs arms and toes crossed here that this coming week brings this particular model subject much closer to reality; subject to wind and tide, we should see a Royal Navy Aircraft Carrier back at sea for the first time in many years, ready for the first F-35B to land on later next year. These markings for 809 Sqn in HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH and HMS PRINCE OF WALES are largely from my own imagination and courtesy of my inkjet printer, but perhaps not that far from the truth. This is Fujimi's delightful 1/72 F-35B kit, with a little
  7. F-35A Die-Cut Flexible Mask (for Meng) 1:48 Galaxy Model If you read my review of the new tooling from Meng here, you'll have seen me mention it a couple of times. My reason for this is simple. It is an almost mandatory purchase if you value your sanity, or dislike complex masking jobs of any shape or form. Due to the different types of RAM applied to the F-35's skin, there are two distinct shades of grey, with a lighter shade around many of the raised areas, and a lot of the flush panel edges too. Without pre-cut masks it makes for a rather tiresome an long-w
  8. These are, of course, The USAF F-35A by Hasegawa, the USMC F-35B by Fujimi, and the USN F-35C by Orange Models. I started these 3 in February and finally finished the F-35C today. First a couple of notes; I built the "B" first and used a Caracal decal sheet. The instruction said that the best color match for for FS-36170 was Humbrol 224 Dark Slate Gray. Since I only use Humbrol anyway that was fine with me and I ordered a batch. When it arrived it looked a little greenish. I called customer service and the rep said that it would depend on the lighting and that real slate had a greenish tinge.
  9. Chinese new brand? Shenzhen M-Legend is working on a new 1/72nd Lockheed-Mart F-35 Lightning II kit - ref.

  10. Lockheed Martin F-35CLightning II OrangeHobby 1:350 The largest of the three F-35 variants, the F-35C carrier variant features larger wings with folding wingtip sections, larger wing and tail control surfaces for improved low-speed control, stronger landing gear for the stresses of carrier arrested landings, a twin-wheel nose gear, and a stronger tailhook for use with carrier arrestor cables when compared with the F-35A. The larger wing area allows for decreased landing speed while increasing both range and payload. The United States Navy intends to buy 480 F-35Cs to replace the F/A-
  11. I need some help please. I have found very few references to what colours to use for the F-35 cockpit. Kitty Hawk are not at all helpful with no references in their instructions. Has anyone who has made either the F-35A or B got any colour reference please? Thanks Peter
