Myanmar Air Force Jf-17 Thunder


Recommended Posts

Myanmar Air Force's newly purchased Jf-17 Thunder! The kit is from Trumpeter in 1/48th scale.

Last year I have built and posted the Myanmar Air Force Jf-17 in the digital camo(What-if)scheme. But in this model, the camo is identical to the real ones as I had a chance to attend the official commissioning ceremony of these new jets and to took photos.

Cockpit is upgraded by photo etch parts from Dream Model. Decals are custom printed and are a bit out of scale and untidy.

Thanks.

Hello Thant,

First the THUD and now this one.

Not familiar with this type of aircraft, looks like a copy of the Mirage.

It looks fantastic. You did it again, my verdict: "Master Modeler"

Regards, Orion.

This is developed in joint by Pakistan and China. More like a copy of F-16.

That is a great looking Thunder, very nice. I like the general shape of the plane, but the camouflage colours make it stand out nicely. Is the JF-17 meant to replace the F-7 in Myanmar Air Force service?

There are still many F-7s in service. I don't think the Jf-17s are the direct replacement for the F-7s. And we got only 7 Jf-17s in the inventory.
