Anything in the decal range for the “Sheep” of VMA-214 ? I will need the “B” to finish my sheep collection ?

VMA-214 Have not as yet transitioned to F-35B - last time I looked they were scheduled to transition sometime this year

This kit is now available. HLJ just put the two I pre-ordered into my Private Warehouse.

Thoroughly, excruciatingly underwhelmed: one RAF type that I have no interest in or intention of modelling.  Ever.  Give me a decent 1/72th Buccaneer instead; much greater choice of colour scheme and markings.....

Agree 100% on the Buccaneer, and on the F-35B I also have no intention of modeling it in RAF colors.

I wouldn’t expect Xtradecal to come out with sets of RAF decals either. Seems like the first deliveries to 617 Squadron will have no Squadron markings whatsoever, just a “Grey doughnut” to represent the British roundel - how boring! 

 

Cheers.. Dave

With more F-35s built than Buccaneers (235 to date vs. 211), more operators (RAF, RN, RAAF, RNAF, RNoAF, USAF, USMC, USN, Japan, Israel, Italy vs. RN, RAF, SAAF), and more potential operations and markings, I can’t agree. Some of the USN, USMC, and RAAF schemes so far are looking pretty interesting (IMHO).

Oh and btw, that B version is UGLY. I've always found the C-version to be the most attractive version of the F-35.

I used to wear beer goggles like that, as the old joke goes 'I never went to bed with an ugly bird but I certainly woke up with a few...'

I've preordered this for my Wife.

I have noticed that in the sample photos on Hannants the engine can be modeled straight down(VTOL), now my question is with the bomb bay doors not having the option to be modeled open does this mean its not accurate?

And all in exactly the same dull,boring shade of grey with varieties of dull,boring, grey markings and insignia? Sorry, but no thanks. I will stick with the Buccaneer.😉.
