A Military Aircraft Model Kit from Airfix.
The F2 introduced in 1962 was much modified in 1968 producing the F2A with square cut fin, kinked leading edges and enlarged ventral tank which gave an enhanced combat air patrol time of some 2 hours.
Entering RAF squadron service in 1960, the Lightning represented a quantum leap in capability and performance over previous interceptor jets, offering mach 2 + performance, as well as a phenomenal rate of climb. Until it's retirement in the 1980's, the Lightning had few rivals for outright speed and climbing ability. However, it was hampered by short range and a poor selection of armament. It's accident rate was also alarming. Replaced by the Tornado F3, the Lightning however remains the ultimate cold war interceptor.
