F35B Lightning II History:
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is an American family of single seat, single engine, all weather stealth multirole combat aircraft that is intended to perform both air superiority and strike missions. It is also able to provide electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities. Lockheed Martin is the prime F-35 contractor, with principal partners Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems. The aircraft has three main variants: the conventional takeoff and landing F-35A, the short take-off and vertical-landing F-35B (the one your buying 😉 ), and the carrier based F-35C.
The aircraft descends from the Lockheed Martin X-35, which in 2001 beat the Boeing X-32 to win the Joint Strike Fighter program. Its development is principally funded by the United States, with additional funding from program partner countries from NATO and close U.S. allies, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Italy, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, and formerly Turkey. Several other countries have also ordered, or are considering ordering, the aircraft. The program has drawn much scrutiny and criticism for its unprecedented size, complexity, ballooning costs, and much-delayed deliveries. The acquisition strategy of concurrent production of the aircraft while it was still in development and testing led to expensive design changes and retrofits.
The F-35 first flew in 2006 and entered service with the U.S. Marine Corps F-35B in July 2015, followed by the U.S. Air Force F-35A in August 2016 and the U.S. Navy F-35C in February 2019. The aircraft was first used in combat in 2018 by the Israeli Air Force. The U.S. plans to buy 2,456 F-35s through 2044, which will represent the bulk of the crewed tactical aviation of the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps for several decades; the aircraft is planned to be a cornerstone of NATO and U.S. allied air power and to operate until 2070.

I have not received the kit yet, but I do know the quality of COBI bricks. So I am looking forward to it! I assembly a component for the actual “Bravo” F-35B lift fan, so the kit has special meaning. BZ to you for fast service and selling a viable alternative for those of us who appreciate the military hardware to defend our country. Retired Navy I am, so looking forward to the USN and other ship models down the road. Once again BZ !

Purchased two. One for me and one for my son who recently spent time assigned to VMFA-122 which flies the F-35B Lightning II’s. We are both very impressed with this kit and its very reasonable cost. Warbricks is a great source of Cobi kits.

I love this F-35. It takes a lot of paying attention when putting together. I love how well Cobi creates their products and how well the blocks are. Thank you, Cobi and Warbricks
This was a great build. My sister in-law was involved in the design and development of this aircraft so this was a must have for me. I’ve been waiting for COBI to come out with this one.

I built the F-35B version; it’s a great build! None of the promos show off one of the best features: a trap-door on the top and swiveling rear nozzle for VTOL! The A model doesn’t have this (as in real-life). I love how the angles of the intakes are built up, though their connections are a tad loose. Displays and swooshes fine, though. Extra pieces for gear up or gear down alternate builds, which I really like. Whether it’s your 1st or 50th Cobi build, you won’t be disappointed.

Cobi has really stepped up their game with the RAF F-35B. The weapons bays are neat and the STOVL variant has the swiveling nozzle and the opening lift fan doors. Also, the pad printing is so much better than the old stickers. Looking forward to see what Cobi offers in the future.
