USN F-35: Far Model
« on: August 16, 2021, 04:53:45 AM »
To solve US Navy‘s Super Hornet/tanker problem, Lockheed Martin offered a new purpose-built F-35 to fill the role of carrier-based tanker. The new F-35s are dubbed E’s and doesn’t have weapon bays nor have the targeting sensor below the nose. Along with stealthy metallic paint was not applied. In January of 2022, the first batch of E’s reached the Fleet. Each F-35 squadron was assigned 4 aircraft. My 1/48 scale F-35E represents one from VFA-31 “Tomcatters” while onboard the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln, callsign “Douche Nozzle One-One”.
