1/200 resin model representing a Grumman F-9F 2B Panther

The Grumman F9F Panther is an early carrier-based jet fighter designed and produced by the American aircraft manufacturer Grumman. It was the first jet-powered fighter aircraft to see air-to-air combat with the United States Navy as well as being Grumman’s first jet fighter.

Future astronaut Neil Armstrong flew the F9F extensively during the Korean conflict, although he ejected from one of the aircraft after it was brought down by a wire strung across a valley in 1951. 

The 2B variant was fitted with underwing racks for bombs and rockets. As all F9F-2s were brought up to this standard, the B designation was eventually dropped.

The models are scaled to 1/200
