1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – Shenyang J-31 Falcon Hawk Chinese Fighter – Length: 9.5" Wingspan: 6.75”
This J-31 model does not include a pilot figure. The cockpit can not open. The landing gear is permanently fixed in the extended position. The the internal weapons bay is also permanently opened and shows a set of four missiles. Attached to the wings are three pairs of three different types of missiles.
The display stand is included. 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 and are quite smooth (so be careful where you put this thing, or it could roll downhill). The fuselage is all metal and really quite heavy.
The maker of the model, Air Force 1, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very crisp and one can see the little dots that represent the rivets holding down the panels.
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.
The box measures 11 inches by 8 inches by 4 inches.
