Product Showcase

The Tamiya 1/48 scale Lockheed Martin F-35 A Lightning II model kit was officially unveiled just a short week ago! Today, we present a few more images of this exciting upcoming release.

These images show the model assembled but unpainted. Instead, we’ve used our Black Panel Line Accent Color on the assembled model to show you the fine intricacies and high-level detail you can expect from the kit! 

We have a lot more photos to show - check them out in the link below:
