Highway to the danger zone… replica fighter jet that travels at 5mph – Telegraph…
Measuring seven metres in length and four metres in width the Â£4,000 F-35 Lightning II Fighter Jet has been built at a scale of 1:2.
Resembling Tom Cruise’s jet out of Top Gun, it took 3,500 hours to construct the model.
The plane is constructed from iron, wood, hard foam, fibreglass and lots of epoxy filler, comes complete with cameras and monitors inside the cockpit, and is capable of achieving speeds of 5mph on the road.
The plane’s designer, Arthur van Poppel, 49, from Tilburg, Holland, said: “I finished the plane at the beginning of last year.
“I had no drawings to work from, just some pictures and a small plastic Revell model to use as an example.
