Product Description

Hobby Master Lockheed F-22A Raptor Tail No 09-4174, "Maloney's Pony", 27th FS, Nov 2015 Langley AFB, VA 1/72 diecast metal and plastic parts. Fully assembled. HA2815

The USAF developed a requirement for a new air superiority fighter to replace the F-15 Eagle. Two proposals were submitted with the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor being selected as the new Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF). The aircraft is constructed using 39% titanium, 24% composite material, 16% aluminum and 1% thermoplastic by weight. All these components contribute to the F-22 being a light weight, extremely maneuverable, extremely fast aircraft that uses stealth technology. The F-22 is also capable of ground attack, electronic warfare and signals intelligence.

The 27th FS Lockheed F-22 Raptor 09-4174 had art work applied to honor the 27th FS highest scoring WWII Ace Major Thomas Maloney. Major Maloney crashed while flying his P-38 named “Maloney’s Pony” and presumed dead but miraculously he survived even after stepping on a land 
mine and crawling for 10 days before a French farmer found him. The 27th FS began making one of their aircraft a “Maloney’s Pony” until they equipped with stealth F-22s in 2005. In 2011 the tradition was reinstated and the 27th FS have their “Maloney’s Pony” back on one aircraft.
