Pee Pjin JR-1 Hua Shang Ling 1/48 Chinatown Whatif Model

November 16, 2021 · in Aviation · · 5 · 1.2K

Chinese fighter, a cheaper answer to the Russian Su-34. It is characterized by the absence of a kitchen for long flights, due to the placement of a box of rice and chopsticks under the seats. The only known film was alienated by the Czech environmental organization ARNIKA from a Chinese agent in the town of Mährisch Weisskirchen, believing (the name in Chinese means "Mountain Flower") that it was a photograph of a rare Tibetan orchid. After learning the truth, they burned the image, destroying the only evidence of the aircraft's existence.

The manufacturer of the model was created by merging several others, known for their poor production. This effort did not work.

  1. A great "whatifer", Josef!
    Love everything of this build! Amazing job on merging the F-111 front with the Sukhoi rear: kudos to your skills and imagination!
    The final result is really interesting and refreshing!

  2. Great joining, Josef @joeross
    Clearly a wonderful "whatif".
    Well done.

  3. That is the best JR-1 I have ever seen! I think you got all the rivets and details very true to life, and the paint scheme and markings are spot on! No one can fault the realism of this popular aircraft. (and besides that, what a cool project! - well done.)

  4. Nice bit of "old school" modeling and a good result.
