Does anyone have a photo of pilots (or human in general) touching the inlet or the wing of F-35? So as to show the relative size
Like below but with the inlet or the wing

Thank you spazsinbad, but that isn't exactly what I am looking for.
Sorry for not making myself clear.
Do you see the slight off colour paint at the inlet and wing edge? I wanted to estimate the size of those paint strip, so a side view photo is what I am looking for

I am assuming you are doing some type of modeling. Same here. I don't know what you already have but these are just net pics from a few years ago. I scaled up a full side view pic in a 3d program then ran the dimension tool on the area you were asking about.
Good luck.

Thank you,however, I'm not doing modeling
I'm trying to estimate the lowest frequency where the edge treatment of F-35 can remain effective.
The minimum required width is about half a wavelength
