1/48 Trumpeter J-20 Mighty Dragon Announced


Recommended Posts

I just noticed a 1/48 J-20 has been added to the 2019 Trumpeter/Hobby Boss catalog under the Trumpeter brand.  Now, I know it can take some time (years?) before their announced kits hit the market, but I for one am pretty excited for this one.

That is awesome to see.  I will be getting that indeed!  Also, as I was scrolling through, saw Hobby Boss has a 1/48 MV-22 Osprey listed (even though they have a CV-22 pictured)  That'll be nice!

Here is a open box video https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1WD4y1D7YG, from other photos I have seen, it is not a really good kit. Most of the complains are: there is no detail on the engine exhaust, not even comparable to their own 1/72 kit, 2) several errors on the fuselage, the EOTS at the bottom of cockpit is a solid plastic, one step back from the clear plastic part for EOTS in the 1/72 kit

From skimming over the video, it looks like an upscaled 1/72 kit detail-wise.

 

I'll still get one, though, hope the price will be set accordingly.

 Watched the video, now my eyes hurt... Good to see pics of the kit, in a rapid fire kinda way, but it DOES look interesting!

I'm not sure if you're responding directly to my inquiry or not, but I'm just looking for the aftermarket 1/48 decal sheet of the "Black Ribbon".

I am not sure what kind of decal you are looking for. To be honest, these 5th gen jet fighters don't have as much decals as those on 4th gen jet fighters.  There is no aftermarket 1/48 decal sheet for J-20 so far, the closest I can find is the low visibility insignia of PLAAF in 1/48 scale

I was referring to this kit - https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10154771/60/2.

I just want to build the 1/48 version of it.
