Thanks! Yes, it's a pretty cool scheme, prettier than the old red one. There was also the Olympic Games version. They looked like a Super Sentai team/the Power Rangers: blue, black, red, yellow and green with a different mascot on the nose.

More of a build log, except I forgot to take pics of the fuselage assembly :

- form central fuselage,
- form nose cone
- form tail cone
- assemble the nose centre piece
- insert nose centre piece into nose pushing it with the non pointy end of a wood dowel
- correct position of the centre piece with tweezers, glue in position
- insert weight behind nose centre piece
- insert connector strips at both ends of the central fuselage, cut some small tabs
- assemble the 3 elements of the fuselage


I found 2 coloring mistakes:
- Red and white don't align between the nose and central section. It's corrected on the final version. The red on the top of the nose will also be pointier.
- red and white are swapped at the root of the main landing gear doors. Edit svg, copy the revised landing gear to a new file, print at the bottom of another (already printed) model and replace parts. It's not visible but pic #12 shows the wrong ones, pic #13 has the correct ones.

I'm also removing the pylons locations from the final version. Still debating if I should add the chinese national insignia on the wings uppersides. Some pictures show them.

Thank you both! I've added these two plus 2 regular chinese J-7E/G (with PL-8s) to the later J-7/F-7 download.

The Bangladesh AF F-7s are now also updated with missiles (PL-5E & PL-9).
