Note that some of the "export" F-7 single-piece windscreen double deltas have 2 guns - Namibia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Bangladesh ( BG ).

Srilanka, Tanzania, Bangladesh ( BGI ) are 1 gun.

Myanmar didn't get this model AFAIK.

Kit is 1 gun - you'll need to use a J-7B kit as a parts mule for 2 gun - but still will need the AOA fitting on the port fuselage.

Fit looks not too exciting on the Moxing site.

The Pakistani flag on the decals looks wrong to me. Maybe it was wrong on the plane too, I don't know.

Yes,the Pakistani flag for the fin is hopelessly incorrect and utterly useless!Trumpeter's designers,researchers or whatever you called them didn't have the slightest clue on how it should really look.Surf the net and it's clear as day light that they have got the creasent moon all wrong!Sorry to use the word but it's just plain ignorance of the worse type.....!

Not to mention that the F-7PG is a 2-gun airplane, and can't be built from this kit.

Trumpeter CAN get it mostly right - IMO the J-8 kits are pretty good. You'ld think they'd take special pride in PLAAF / PLANAF aircraft ???
