The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters. The fifth-generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground-attack and air-superiority missions. It has three main models: the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35B short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) variant, and the F-35C carrier-based catapult-assisted take-off but arrested recovery (CATOBAR) variant.
The F-35A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant intended for the U.S. Air Force and other air forces. It is the smallest, lightest F-35 version and is the only variant equipped with an internal cannon, the GAU-22/A. This 25 mm cannon is a development of the GAU-12 carried by the USMC's AV-8B Harrier II. It is designed for increased effectiveness against ground targets compared to the 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon carried by other USAF fighters.
On March 2021 the Royal Danish Air Force F-35A L-001/19-5530 c/n AP-01 fired its PW- F-135 engine for the first time. On March 8 the aircraft completed its maiden flight and was delivered to Luke Air Force base on April 7, 2021. Denmark ordered 27 F-35s with about 6 remaining at Luke Air Force base for training by the 308th FS “Emerald Knights”. The first Danish pilot completed a solo flight on January 14, 2022. The new aircraft will be based at Skrydstrup AB with the first aircraft scheduled to arrive in 2023.
This highly detailed Hobby Master model represents the first Danish Air Force F-35A (Bureau Number 19-5530) S/N L-001 in 2021. The aircraft will be used by USAF’s 308th Fighter Squadron based at Luke Air Force base for training Danish pilots.
As with most Hobby Master models this F-35A features engraved panel lines, antennas, surface details an opening canopy, a well-appointed cockpit (with instrumentation details), pilot figure, full weapons complement, optional-position landing gear, authentic squadron markings, and a display stand.
