This little trumpeter kit was a nice build except for the kit decals. Painted waith Tamiya paints and weathered with Mig washes . Enjoy 🙂

  1. Nice job.Great attention to detail, The plane itself looks like a hybrid of at least three different other craft.

  2. Great looking build, the finish is super

  3. Yep….what they said – good detailing work all right.

  4. Another nicely finished model from you, Brian, thanks for sharing it with us.

  5. Another fine build Brian, nicely painted! I’m enjoying these jets you are posting!

  6. The J-17 Thunder looks very much like an F 5 Freedom Fighter on steroids. I like this one very much. You did a stunning job on this kit that is not often seen on model building forums. Well done Brian!!!

  7. That is a neat looking plane, now that I’m seeing it. Hmmmmm. And in Pakistani markings, rather than PLAF.
    Good job on her, nice to see one built.

  8. Great build! I’ve got this same kit in 1/72, and having just finished the Trumpeter JH-7A, understand the problem with decals! I tore of the larger ones trying to get them loose from the backing paper.

    What colors of paint did you use?
