F-35 65th Aggressor Squadron Camo Paint Masks Set 1/72
Suggested scale: 1/72
Suggested use: Italeri, Tamiya, Revell, PM Model F-35A kits
The set includes one sheet of masks (shown in the picture). The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. It is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semitransparent for easy and accurate placing.
Lightning II is the latest 5th generation US fighter jet. It is made by Lockheed Martin Corporation and together with F-22 and B-2 it is the backbone of the US Air Force Stealth fleet. F-35 is planned to serve up until 2070 in its various modifications around the Globe. More than 4000 are planned to be built. In 72nd scale, Italeri kit is among the most accurate and most attractive replicas of the F-35A in that scale. Its RAM panels are slightly exaggerated compared to the real airplane, but that is done with the idea of “enhanced reality in scale” in mind. This Aggressor camouflage is designed specifically for Italeri F-35A kits and their derivatives – Tamiya, Revell, PM Model. The set might not fit any other toolings of the F-35A.
squadron was re-established on June 9 2022 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. It is assigned to the 57th Operations Group of the USAF. F-35 Aggressor is designed to simulate Chinese 5th generation J-20 Stealth fighter. Due to the growing tensions between China and US in the last years, USAF decided to focus on pilot training with shifting the potential enemy from the usual Russia to emerging China. Replicating 5th generation adversary aircraft is the best way to train US pilots to cope with any potential threat involving Stealth Fighters. After more nearly 8 years of hiatus, in 2022 the 65th Aggressor Squadron is once again active and will feature exclusively F-35A Lightning II Stealth jets for adversary training.
