Not in the new Trumpeter's catalogue but in the IPMS Philippines homepage. Trumpeter is to release in 2016 a 1/48th Chengdu J-20 kit - ref.? To put alongside the Hobby Boss 1/48th YF-23 kit, I suppose? http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234934034-148-northrop-yf-23-black-widow-by-hobby-boss-released Source: http://ipmsphilippines.com/test-shots/testshot-trumpeter-148th-chinese-stealth-jet-j-20/ Test shot V.P.
China's modern air arm is noterious for being filled of 'rip-off' aircraft. The J-10 is apparently the Lavi. The J-31 is apparently made from hacked F-35 designs. The J-20 also follows this pattern, but less obviously. It's alleged that this aircraft draws it's origin from the Mig 1.44 - an aircraft that (sadly) never got into production. I don't know why, but Chinese aircraft have fascinated me recently. Ever since finishing my J-10 I've just become completely obsessed with Chinese aviation! So, a J-20 had to be made. Construction is/was beautiful! It's fit together so seamlessly. I actually forgot to put this up here, however, so I'm pretty far in now. Really I'm nearly at painting.
