Not in the new Trumpeter's catalogue but in the IPMS Philippines homepage.
Trumpeter is to release in 2016 2020 a 1/48th Chengdu J-20 kit - ref 05811

To put alongside the Hobby Boss 1/48th YF-23 kit, I suppose?

The sprues look quite similar in layout to the 1/72 kit. They must have scaled it up, cleaned up the enlargement, and went "hey, we have all this space to put extra stuff in!" and added the weapon bay doors (the 1/72 kit doesn't open up).

It's me or the sprues displayed in the former - and now unavailable - IPMS Philippines homepage look really like those of the new Trumpeter's 1/72nd J-20 kit?

In my opinion, the mention "1/48th scale" is an error... My two cents.

For the record there's a 1/48th J-20 resin kit in the Anigrand catalog:

Lol, that might have been indeed the case..

 

We have now double digits number of J-20s around with LRIP is going on. There is a windfall of pictures which got me excited. I really hope Trumpeter/Hobbyboss (or some other company) come up with a current cutting edge model of this plane. From some angles it is a real looker.
