1/48 - Chengdu J-10C Vigorous Dragon by Trumpeter - released


Recommended Posts

Pakistan has taken delivery of a version called : J-10CE  it looks lovely in the Pakistan light and dark grey swath’s. It’s got the fwd swept intake for enhanced RCI reduction  ( better stealth) and an AESA radar ( different radome configuration).  This version as I know it is called the B version which I have in my garage. So, I don’t know what the C version is? Maybe this kit will come with different weapons. And, I must assume E stands for export. Any hoo, with a little more research this will be going onto my wish list.  One final note is that this is a response to India buying Dassault Rafale’s , and there fore an arms race, with India reliant on Russian weapons and their performance recently, expect India to start buying more western products.       😉

Nice. Would like them finally to do some of these modern Chinese jets in 1/32, especially the J-8 and J-10, but this project means the prospects remain alive.

J-8 and modern is maybe a bit far-fetched... J-10 of course is... J-20 even more so!

 

I would also take aa J-7 Leopard or A-5 Fantan in 48...or an early J-8 A.... :)

J-8s are still operational, albeit in diminishing numbers. About 100-125 remaining at last count.

J-20's a bit big for 1/32, but having said that a new tool of the SAC J-15/J-15T "Mandarin Sea Flanker" would really float my Liaoning. Even in 1/48.

 

The 1/48 J-10C will be very welcomed.

Thanks!

Not sure if the ECM pods of the last sprue pics are new, could be!

Maybe it's just me, but the canopy and windscreen look very cloudy.

I see that this update has exactly the same content as the preceding, only the ECM and the targeting pods are included. I hope that the decoration of the Pakistani army would be present.

Trumpeter page says it has color schemes of J-10B. I dont know if this is an accurate description. But if that is the case, then no Pakistan Air Force markings in the box.
