Caracal Models CD 48140: F-35A Joint Strike Fighter
This is pretty much an update sheet that includes a number of more current airplanes. This includes quite a few NATO and other nations that have purchased the aircraft. Now F-35s are pretty much a boring looking plane as there is no color at all in their markings other than grey. It is the price one pays for having a low radar visibility paint scheme. For that reason, I've not shown profiles for all 18 aircraft. All of the markings in this sheet are from 2018.
Note also that there is no unit information provided for any of the non-USAF aircraft and for some of the USAF offerings, I had to look that info up. A data markings sheet is provided for one plane.

The markings are printed by Cartograf, and while the Meng kit is recommended, I think these will work just fine with those from other companies. The color for these aircraft is overall FS36170 Camouflage Grey. This shade is available ready mixed from several paint companies.
