Good to see another PLAAF collector about (I know there more of you out there lol)

I'd say for J-20/31, no other options but Airforce1 / AVIC (as TC pointed out )

J-11/15/16 maybe JCW will close that gap as Airforce1 Flankers are basically rubbish.

There's also Gaincorp if you can still find them or Gaincorp copies from Chinese domestic market that come in red boxes and look pretty nice.

ya well, we all know your turnabout with regard to chinese manufacturers after one freebie from your relative it's almost as epic as the 144 viper, but at least you got a bigger model

Well that's the thing, my opinion didn't change after 1 freebie (from relatives) I still think AF1/AVIC are poor QC models, unlike some that are so cheap as to do an about face and change their opinion after 1 poor quality odd scale manu freebie

you were bashing 'em chinese manufacturers prior to that though

but in all fairness, you got your freebie from relatives (who have no connection with the manufacturers, presumably?) instead of the manufacturers themselves... and hey, you never did say details don't matter from 2 feet away

I like the J-20. Who makes a decent one with landing gear and weapon bay options?

I was answering similar question some time ago here on DA.C forum, but in the meanwhile I successfully lost track about it and now I can´t find it. Have you tried Search this Forum function?
Also some other collectors presented their valuable comments.

Try search for terms such as: AVIC, unknown chinese manufacturer, Su-35, J11B, Shenyang, Terebo, Avic J-31, Best Diecast Flanker, Most accurate Flankers ever, etc.

Also SuperKungFu member (try Advanced Search) recently posted photos of chinese J-15 and J-11B in dedicated threads.

Let us know your opinions then.

At this point, no one, only option is from AVIC with fixed gears but weapon bay opens.

There is also a Dragon Wings and AF1 1/144 versions as well but fixed gear and weapon bays do not open.

It would be great to see this or the J-31 made in zinc by a more detailed manu but the chances of that happening based on only 1 operator and maybe 1 livery once operational, are slim.
