1:48 Meng F-35A

Recommended Posts

Looks interesting, will keep an eye on this. Loving the slightly retro box art.

This could definitely be an F35 kit worth considering. Looking forward to it! 👍

Was just thinking the box art and text looks like Academy from years back. It's always quite exciting to see a company like Meng doing something in my scale and genre, like AFV Club doing the F-5 series. Nice to see a company doing up to date weapons as well and not just the usual fair.

Hope they do the 'B' and 'C' variants too.

As soon as I get a slot I'll start my KH 'B' to ensure it. Happy to take one for the team.

No thanks, ugliest plane that ever flew, regardless of kit manufacturer/scale!

Nice! Looks a bit like the existing F-35A kit, but no pilot figure:worry:

I actually like the F-35A/B/C, but always prefer inflight mode and a pilot figure will help in such cases. With the special helmet for the F-35, one can't just rob a pilot from another kit like I would have otherwise ;)

Riveting looks a little exaggerated (and it is the first time in my life that I say that!)...

As do those raised RAM panels .... to my eye these are relativly flush with the rest of the fuselage, unlike what we are seeing produced by the various model manufacturers. Hasegawa's 2014 1/72 kit seems to have got this right, however (IMO) all newer tooled kits are taking this raised panel approach?  Meng's CAD's and Boxart look so much better then these sprue images suggest.

Guess that's why we are getting seperate weapon sets, unfortunately.

This one I need to see irl before making a purchase decision.

Either I absolutely like the surface reproduction, or I absolutely don't...

According to the link in the first post, the last line says this:

 

What's more, the latest stores of the USAF are provided in the kit.

 

also the box art says Various Store Options so it looks like the sprue pics aren't showing the weapons.
