DreamModel 1/72 PLAAF J-20 Mighty Dragon W.I.P.


Recommended Posts

DreamModel 1/72 Chinese J-20 Mighty Dragon in-service stealth fighter #720010, I will just OOB this time for sure. It's a fully new tooling of DreamModel, came with TWO engine nozzle options: Saturn AL-31F M2 engine & Shenyang WS-10 Taihang engine. The model is made based on the details of in-service aircraft, which is very different from the prototype aircraft. 

 

First thing first, let me show you guys the content.

- Instruction manual

 

Ok, that's all for appetizer. Time for main course now. 

I received the J-20 directly from DreamModel, Shanghai on 13th August. Begin unboxing, taking photos and assembling - it's very easy to assemble, not much of parts and the fitting is good. The design of canards are very user-friendly and fully movable, there's a latch and you don't even need to glue that thing onto fuselage. The intakes & Exhaust nozzles are like snap-fit, the details of weapons bay are nice too. You can choose to open/close the weapons bay. I am quite surprise for its easy-assemble,

Hi Robert, some parts only like cockpit and canards, some other parts you need to glue them.

Some updates: Pre-shading work - Gunze 40 German Grey, Gunze 72 Intermediate Blue, Gunze 43 Wooden Brown & Gunze 315 FS16440.

Layers by layers but I think I've done it a little bit over, this is J-20 not F-14 🤪
