Hobby Master 1/72 Lockheed Martin F-35C 003 モPole Test Scheme", 2012

With so many unanswered F-35 Lightning II questions that a computer simulation couldn't solve, it was deemed necessary to build two full-scale models. These fiberglass and aluminum models were completed two years before the first test F-35 flew. Since stealth was the key factor to the F-35's construction it was necessary to test the aircraft's antennae in different locations and varying angles. The F-35C model painted similar to the VF-103 Jolly Rogers was placed high on a pole to test if the larger wings and slight airframe difference would impact the antennas. Testing was conducted at the US Air Forces Research Laboratory in Rome, NY.

Designed to meet the US Military's requirement for a multi-role Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006. This single-seat fighter is one of the most advanced aircraft of our time, said to be four times more effective at air-to-air combat and eight times more effective at air-to-ground combat than any other existing aircraft. It uses a low-maintenance stealth technology, and some versions have an innovative Lift System, which gives the F-35 vertical take-off and landing capabilities. The US plans to buy a total of 2,443 F-35s at a cost of $323 billion, which makes the F-35 the most expensive defense program in history.
