The second prototype of the Mitsubishi XF-2B was 63-0004 and delivered to the Technical Research and Development Institute. In 1996 the designations F2-A was assigned for the single-seat variant and F-2B for the dual-seat. In December of 1997, the serial numbers of all four XF-2 prototypes were changed from the TRDI designations to JASDF system so 63-0004 became 63-8102. 63-8102 was turned over to the JASDF Air Development and Test Wing at Gifu in September 1997. When the F-2B went into production their serial numbers were in the 8100 range.

Please note: This release depicts the aircraft with attached pylons and includes four AAM-3 and 4 AAM-4 missiles.

Mitsubishi XF-2B

Designed as a strike fighter for the Japan Air Self-Defense Force, the Mitsubishi F-2 was first flown on October 7, 1995. Manufactured with a 60/40 split between Japan and the US, the F-2 is a cooperative production effort between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Lockheed Martin. Based on an enlarged version of the F-16 (known as the Agile Falcon), the F-2 replaced the aging Mitsubishi F-1. The Japanese ordered 94 F-2s between 2000 and 2008, and in July of 2010 ordered an additional 50. Armed with ASM-1 and ASM-2 anti-ship missiles, this capable aircraft can also carry 500lb bombs and drop tanks with a 4,400kg fuel capacity.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale Mitsubishi F-2 is constructed using an intelligent mix of diecast metal and plastic, which allows for the greatest possible detail. Among this model's most remarkable features are an articulating hinged opening canopy that closes with almost no visible gap, a large number of pad-printed flight instruments, landing gear that has been constructed as subassemblies for easy configuration and a rudder and engine intake that are accurately replicated in plastic. The solid metal wing features wingtip mounted sidewinder missiles, delicate static wicks on the trailing edge and a full complement of removable ordnance and fuel tanks.
