Lockheed Martin F-35B STOVL Rollout Scheme (Italeri 1:72)

This kit is a very solid effort by Italeri. The fit is great, the inclusions such as full interior, tinted canopy, weapons and even a bomb trolley all add up to good value.

For the most part the detailing and accuracy also seems spot on. I'd be quite happy if they scaled this guy up to 1/48 as the only game in town in that scale right now is KittyHawk. I've found Italeri kits to be very "hit and miss" in recent years but having now built this one I can definitely conclude its a hit.
