Historical Context:
The JH-7A Flying Leopard represents an advanced variant of the basic JH-7 model, designed to fulfill the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) need for an aircraft with enhanced precision strike capabilities. Developed by the 603 Institute in the mid-1990s with full-scale development starting in 1999, the JH-7A was a response to the Air Force and Navy’s requirements for a modern replacement for their aging H-5 and Q-5 fleets. First delivered to the PLA Naval Aviation in early 2004 and subsequently to the PLA Air Force later that year, the JH-7A features improvements such as the JL-10A pulse doppler radar, a fly-by-wire (FBW) flight control system, a one-piece windscreen, additional hardpoints, and the capability to deploy Laser-guided bombs (LGB) and Kh-31P anti-radiation missiles.

This model kit allows enthusiasts to build a detailed scale replica of the PLA JH-7A Flying Leopard, celebrating its role in enhancing the precision strike capabilities of the Chinese Air Force and Navy.

Understanding Scale

The scale of a model is its size as a proportion to the real-life item. For instance, a 1:18 scale model means that every 1 unit of measurement on the model equals 18 units on the real item. If you divide the real item's size by 18, you'd get the size of the 1:18 model. Please note that models can vary slightly in size, as not all real-life items, like cars or planes, have the same dimensions.
