1/48 AA FBC-1 (“Soaring Flying The Leopard”)
This is a BIG aircraft, and a very basic, inexpensive kit of a Chinese fighter in demonstration team colors. Everything about this kit is minimal, including detail and decals, but the overall size is impressive, and it looks “bright” on a shelf of drab jets. I never heard of AA before, or since. I bought two different models they offered (on sale), because I felt I had nothing to lose, at the price. If nothing else, It’s unusual. The “name” of the aircraft came right off the Chinese box art, and is some of the very few words of english in the whole kit. If you don’t expect much, you won’t be dissappointed…….
