1:144 Scale Diecast Metal - Chengdu J-10 Chinese Air Force – Length: 4.5" Wingspan: 3.”
This J-10 model is a single seat plane. The cockpit is glue shut. It has no pilot/crew figures included. The landing gear is fixed in the extended position.
At 1/144 scale these models are quite small but from the photos you can see that the details and coloring are very realistic. These models are made metal and plastic parts. Weapons and attachments are already glued to the model. There is no assembly or painting needed; one just needs to take the model out of the package and display it.
The model is made to be displayed on its landing gear. There is no display stand included.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The maker of this model did a good job with this model, specifically the color scheme and the markings are very crisp and clear. The panel lines and hatches are very nicely done (engraved).
The box measures at 6 inches by 3.5 inches by 2 inches.
