Academy 12507 F-35A Lightning II Fighter Plane Plastic Model Kit. This kit builds into highly detailed 1/72 scale model of one of the US's newest fighter planes. First flown in 2006, the F-35 was developed as a "Joint Strike Fighter" expected to be used by all four US armed forces and many NATO members. Designed to replace the F-16, A-10 and F/A-18 the F-35 has been delayed and has had difficulty meeting its performance targets.
