More info

The MiG-15 and MiG-17 are famous Russian-designed fighters of the Cold War period. With Russian technological assistance, China copied the MiG-17 as the J-5 (Jian J-5) and commenced local production in the 1950s. The J-5 built by Shenyang was a single-seat interceptor based on the MiG-17F Fresco-C, plus China also exported it as the F-5. The People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) obtained plans for the J-5 in 1955 and the first aircraft flew the following year. Before production ceased in 1969, the PLAAF had received 767 J-5 and J-5A fighters. The J-2, meanwhile, was the Chinese designation for approximately 2,000 Soviet-produced MiG-15 fighters that were imported to serve in the PLAAF from 1950-55. The J-2 was flown widely by China during the Korean War, and the PLAAF only retired its last J-2 examples in 1986.

This is a 1/72 Cyber-Hobby dual plastic kit to build one Jian Ji-2 and one Jian Ji-5, with decals for the PLAAF versions.

Orange Box is offering a special 1+1 set featuring both a J-2 and a J-5. The two model fighters are built accurately to 1/72 scale, and they perfectly capture the look of the MiG-15 and MiG-17 from whence they are derived. Well-detailed and well-engineered components fit together with pleasing precision. Of course, the set includes appropriate PLAAF decal markings for these two aircraft types that served faithfully in China’s early years. 

Decals are provided for two different Ji-2/MiG-15s and four Ji-5/MiG-17s, including the infamous Vietnamese ace Col. Toon. The instructions are a single fold-out sheet with painting directions in color. The color chart includes codes for three different brands, including Model Master.

And as modelers have come to expect, this useful Orange Box set comes with an extremely reasonable price tag.
