The F-35B STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) variant while theF-35C is a CV (Carrier Variant). The F-35 will replace the USAF A-10 and F-16, the F/A-18 for the USN and the F/A-18 and AV-8B Harrier for the USMC.
This Hobby Master F-35B model is a replica of the plane that on March 18, 2010 at Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland’s Integrated Test Force (ITF) from Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23 the first F-35B prototype BF-01 lifted off with the runway using less than 1000 feet and only 80 knots of speed. After 13 minutes of flight BF-01 sed its 41,000 pounds of thrust to hover 150 feet above the ground and then slowly descend to a successful first vertical landing.
As with most Hobby Master models this F-35B features engraved panel lines, antennas, surface details an opening canopy, a well-appointed cockpit (with instrumentation details), weapons complement, optional-position landing gear, authentic squadron markings, and a display stand.
