"very nice kit, good detail, well molded with no flash"
rarem37
I've just opened this one up and done some test fitting. The parts seem to fit together very well. They are crisply molded with no flash. What I really like about this kit is that it includes a pretty nice selection of weapons/stores for under the wings! A lot of kits above this price range don't have any weapons or fuel tanks, so I have to recommend this one very highly. I'm getting the paint and glue out so I can start this right away.....

Information

The FBC (Fighter Bomber China)-1, also known as the "Flying Leopard" or JH-7, is a new type of fighting-bomber designed by Xi'an Aircraft design Research Institute and produced in Xian Aircraft Industry Corp. Which made its debut at the Beijing military parade on Oct. 1, 1999, on the PRC's 50th anniversary. In 1999-2000, the PLAAF received at least 20 such long-range fighters. With many breakthroughs in manufacture technique, FBC-1's outstanding advantages are long range, big loading and strong power. It can take the offensive to ground, to sea and dogfight. It reaches to the design requirements of active defense. Each FBC-1 is equipped with 2 Rolls Royce Spay MK 202 engines. In early 2002, Xian Aircraft completed development of the JH-7A fighter-bomber, an improved copy of the FBC-1. The success of its development fills the gaps in the fields of Chinese fighting-bomber.
