Description

This is a resin-cast aircraft kit.

From the manufacturer:

The Learjet 35 and 36 are stretched, turbofan-powered developments of the initial Learjet models, the 23, 24 and 25. The availability of the Garrett AiResearch TGE731 turbofan in the late 1960s led to the the development of the Learjet 25 that was initially known as the 25B-GF (Garrett Fan). A testbed Learjet 25 with a TFE731 on its left side flew in May 1971, while the definitive Learjet 35 prototype first flew on August 22, 1973.

Aside from turbofans, the 35 and longer-range 36 differ from the earlier Learjet 25 in having an 0.33m (1 foot, 1 inch) fuselage stretch, and five windows (instead of four) on the right side of the fuselage. The Learjet 35 has seating for up to eight, but has less fuel than the longer-range 36, which can only seat up to six, as both types share the same maximum takeoff weight. The 35 and 36 were certificated in July 1974.

Improvements to the two models led to the 35A and 36A from 1976, with higher standard max takeoff weights. Both models remained in production until 1994.

This resin kit includes clear fuselage windows, white metal undercarriage parts, and decals for USAFE and AMC aircraft.
