F-35B in 1/72

Hope you guys don’t mind another model kit post. After I finished my Harrier I started an F-35B. Finally finished it yesterday. Made a totally not accurate LHA-6 deck out of cardboard that I literally eyeballed off a YouTube video :rofl:


Hasegawa? If so, almost expensive as the real thing!

Yep. Only $23 here though. Not sure what they go for overseas.

About $35 US, depending on where you look. Just need to add some crayon marks to finish it up!

Someone ate all my crayons.

(Actually though, I use crayon pastels for weathering effects)


Nice work!
Especially considering the small scale!

How did you paint it? Airbrush?

Airbrush. The RAM tape was part of the decal set, though. Huge pain to work with to be honest.


I did a 1/72 F-35, don’t recall which kit but they wanted the RAM tape masked and painted. Nope. No way. Not gonna happen. On the downside without it the model ended up being fairly bland.

I considered painting the RAM tape on this one because the decal colors are totally wrong, but I came to the same conclusion: Nope, not gonna happen :rofl:
