Plus Model from the Czech Republic appears to be first to offer a figure of an F-35 pilot. This new release is a 1/48 scale figure cast in gray resin and presented as a single piece casting with excellent details.
Here are three views of this figure. You can see the distinctive augmented reality helmet which is one major difference between an F-35 pilot and other pilot figures. This pilot is also depicted with his Speed Jeans (G-suit), survival vest, emergency flotation gear, and dangling oxygen mask.
If you want a pilot figure to pose next to your Kitty Hawk 1/48 F-35 Lightning II model, this nice figure needs some paint and he'll be ready to fly. You can purchase this figure directly from Plus Model.
My sincere thanks to Plus Model for this review sample!
