-A plastic model assembly kit that reproduces the F-2A modified type of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force, which conveys the performance of improving capabilities with additional parts, on a 1/144 scale.
[About the actual machine]
--The Japan Air Self-Defense Force's F-2A fighter was jointly developed by Japan and the United States as a successor to the F-1 support fighter and began operation in 2000.
--Although the F-2A had been repaired to improve its capabilities such as sensors and radar even after the start of unit deployment, in addition to that, AN / AAQ-33 Sniper XR was introduced as a target instruction pod with the operation of laser JDAM. Also, the equipment of a close-fitting drop tank = conformal fuel tank to increase the cruising range was considered.
――This makes it possible to eliminate the drop tank that was previously suspended under the wings and mount more weapons.
――The expansion of the conformal fuel tank has not been realized as of 2022, but in this way, the F-2 has plenty of room to evolve into a true multirole fighter, and will continue to play an active role in the future. Is expected.
[About the model]
――The F-2A is increasing its presence year by year as a fighter of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force.
――There are plans to improve various capabilities in the future, but with the introduction of a kit that anticipates the future of the F-2A.
--Modeling in a powerful style that was considered with the aim of improving future capabilities.
--A large integrated tank called a conformal fuel tank is mounted on the upper surface of the fuselage, and the nose is equipped with the AN / AAQ-33 Sniper XR pod on a 1/144 scale.
--The kit is based on Ftoys parts, and the conformal tank and sniper XR pod are prepared with resin parts.
――You can enjoy a unique style that is more powerful.
――The finished total length is about 107mm, and the wing span is about 77mm. Decals that are supposed to be deployed are also included with the cult graph.
――It is a kit that you can enjoy with your own ideas, together with various kits of the 1/144 Weapon series that are on sale as an option.
--Plastic model assembly kit that reproduces the F-2A fighter of the Air Self-Defense Force on 1/144 scale
-Parts are made by Ftoys and set for one machine
--Reproduce the powerful style that the addition of various equipment was considered as a capacity improvement repair type
--The conformal tank and AN / AAQ-33 Sniper XR pod for which additional equipment was considered are reproduced with resin parts.
――The finished total length is about 107mm
--The decal is made by Cartograph. Marking is reproduced with specifications assuming unit deployment
