Trumpeter 1/48 J-7B
I started this build more than three years ago but several things got in the way of posting in headlines, but here goes. More details about the kit, the build, and the real thing can be found on the WIP https://imodeler.com/groups/work-in-progress-aircraft/forum/topic/trumpeter-1-48-j-7b-fighter/ but here a few details.
The J-7B is a Chinese licensed build of the MiG-21, using many of the parts from Russia, but some are modified to suit, and others are replaced, particularly the engine, avionics and the canopy.
The kit is one of the many variations offered by Trumpeter in 1/48 scale, both of the J-7 and MiG-21, no real difficulties were encountered in the build, but, I decided to experiment in covering the model with kitchen foil to achieve a NMF, not sure if this was successful or not, I’ll let you be the jury.
Thanks for looking, George.
