1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – Xian JH-7 Flying Leopard Chinese Fighter Bomber - PLAAF – Length: 12" Wingspan:7”
This JH-7 model is a twin seat airplane and pilot/crew figures are included. The cockpit does not open. The landing gear is fixed in the extended position and the box includes a metal stand where the model can be attached for display. The stand is made entirely of metal, it is very sturdy and it is held together by a nut/screw assembly. The wheels can roll freely. The fuselage is all metal
There are movable surfaces on the wings and vertical tail.
The model comes with 11 attachments attached to its wings and fuselage, 2 wing tip missiles, 2 smart bombs and 4 air to surface missiles attached to the wings. Attached to the fuselage are a pair of pods and a center line fuel tank.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. 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.
