Looks to me like it's been extensively customized. I see evidence of body filler below the neck line and some frenching near the belt line. Definitely not stock.

Cool idea until it is actually put into action:

Weak sauce result.
It does not have 1390 km combat radius if it has all that ordonance on external pylons. No sir.

F-35
751 nm
notes for that range were
internal only
air-to-air
optimum cruise,
1 minute of combat,
5% fuel degradation,
2% reduced thrust
