Man builds F-35 fighter jet, drives it on the roads

If you can’t ever get inside a real F-35, why not build yourself one? That is exactly what Arthur van Poppel did and created this done-it-himself F-35. Poppel’s jet is a scaled version of the original and integrates awesomeness with the attention to detail, down to the pilot ‘costume’. He added an extra seat to the fighter jet, and some special effects like spewing smoke, water and confetti. Incredible attention to detail, but what he forgot to make the jet capable of flying and also, the jet is incapable of firing missiles. Lockheed Martin’s F-35 does seem to have an edge on Poppel’s jet, but since Lockheed’s fighter jet can’t move around the road entertaining people, or throw confetti around, we give the prize to Poppel’s jet.
