Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series HA2714 Mitsubishi F-2B JASDF 21st Hikotai, #33-8116, Matsushima AB, Japan, March 2016. 1/72 Scale Diecast Model, Size: 6.25" Wingspan, 8.5" Long, Optional Up & Down Landing Gear, Armaments & Display Stand Are Included.

The Mitsubishi F-2 is a multirole fighter derived from the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, and manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Lockheed Martin for the Japan Air Self-Defense Force, with a 60/40 split in manufacturing between Japan and the United States. The basis of the F-2's design is the F-16 Agile Falcon, an unsuccessful offer by General Dynamics to provide a low-cost alternative for the Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) competition. Production started in 1996 and the first aircraft entered service in 2000. The first 76 aircraft entered service by 2008, with a total of 98 airframes produced. Primary Role: Multirole Fighter.

On March 11, 2011 a magnitude 9 earthquake rocked Northeastern Japan and created a gigantic tsunami (tidal wave) that devastated the entire area. As the water rushed over land it found its way onto the Matsushima AB destroying or damaging 18 F-2 jets. It wasn’t until March 2016 when the base was restored that F-2B 33-8116 wearing a special paint scheme made a commemorative flight at Matsushima to mark the return of the 21st Squadron. F-2B 33-8116 was the third F-2 to be restored after the tsunami.
