BAC Lightning F./A/F.2: 1:72 Scale (ON Sale!)
This highly detailed 1/72 scale model kit of the BAC Lightning is a Cold War era, single-seat, twin-engine, supersonic jet fighter. The Lightning was developed by English Electric (EE) and British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) for use by the Royal Air Force in the late 1950’s. The Lightning was a high-performance fighter aircraft that lived up to its namesake. It was the first aircraft capable of supercruise. Supercruise is the sustained supersonic flight of an aircraft with a useful cargo, passenger, or weapons load without use of afterburners. Some 337 Lightning fighters were manufactured, and the type was used by the Royal Air Force, the Kuwaiti Air Force, and the Royal Saudi Air Force. This model kit of the BAC Lightning in 1/72 scale by Trumpeter can be built as the F.1A or F.2 version, and the kit features 72 parts in light grey and clear plastic. Authentic decal markings are included.
