"Monica" was so much cuter than the F-35 :-*

Still, I would have kept the protruding lower lip of the intake, that adds character. Though, this variant is distinctive and pleasant enough too (and they both scream "Vought" anyway, and that is a good thing).

I think the first pic has a “21st century F-86 Sabre” look to it.

I coulda sworn I posted this stuff previously:









1/40th modelshop casting in Swedish splinter that Charlie Sorenson was working on before
his untimely death way too young. He worked in the Boeing modelshop for a number of years.
He was going to pass on a casting to me, unfortunately that never happened.  :icon_crap:

For some reason I like this version of the F-32, not the delta version I've got in 1/72.  Does anyone know if there's a 1/72 version of this one ?

I looked everywhere Robert and the only mold was the Italeri/Revell/Tamiya one.

The only other place which might have one is the Area 51 Tuck Shop.  ;)

Me too Carl, but my google search for Area 51 Tuck Shop turned up only fast-food restaurants  -----  ???

Now if I could only find a new link to Muroc Models ---

Anyone know when the F-35C will be available in kit form?
