Chengdu J-20 (1:33 PLAAF Fighter) by Galaxy Paper Art

Hi all, I would like to share a build of the Chengdu J-20 by Weibo user 半月9

(Photos used with permission from Sina Visitor System )

Some might remember this is a model that I have designed. Which, after almost a decade I finally decided to publish under Galaxy Paper Art. It is a small cardmodel publisher that we started among us and this is the first offering under the name. In order to reach publishing quality, the model presented here is almost a complete redesign featuring updated information on the production airframe, as well as better instructions. Yea, this is the third time I modelled this subject from scratch (in 2011 2012 and 2020 respectively), I probably need to work on something else.

Credit goes to our friends at the publishing service, friends who kindly provided the laser cut and canopy, friends who testbuilt the model, and of course, 半月9 who built a quality rendering of the kit. All their work have made this possible.

=================================

I am an advocate of free models and have previously said that the J-20 will be a free release. Times may change but I stand by these words. The model of the prototype aircraft (aircraft 2001) will be released as free and is currently being uploaded. The published version is of the production aircraft (aircraft 78232, see cover art). There are many differences between them, including dimension-wise, and most parts are not interchangeable.

Pricing information, domestically the price is CNY 129 (20 USD) for the model alone or CNY 239 (37 USD) to additionally include clear canopy and lasercut card parts. I am not making any promise that this model will be available outside China as we have not yet figured out a way to receive payment in this capacity in any sort of formal way, but we are trying (that is why I have posted this as a build thread rather than in the new release section). If anyone is interested in obtaining a copy we may be able to discuss this via PM.

Best Regards

May I suggest that you convince the publisher to consider digitalising the basic kit and put it up for sale on Ecardmodels (if it’s not done yet)!
