this one was released in Japan as a gift with a magazine...

However the free model with Dengeki Hobby came with fictional markings for a JASDF bird. The Trumpeter kit has just USAF.

Good kit though. Shame the cockpit canopy is molded into the fueslage.

Don't know if anyone has seen it yet, but Pit Road has released an F-35A Lightning II in demonstrator markings and a hypothetical JASDF bird.

Looks a lot better than the Revell X-35 kit.

Not sure how to insert a link so this is the URL at Hobby Link Japan

i was in tokyo in august and i picked up the Magazine/Raptor combo. I also managed to pick up the PitRoad F35 kit.

The F22 kit looks great.

the F35 looks great too, except for the landing gear covers which have these huge giant oak tree sized (scaled oak tree that is) supports molded on to them.
