Attack 1/144 Shenyang JJ-6/MiG-19UTI “Dual Kit”
By Matt Bittner
There was one other thing China did, and created an export version of the JJ-6, the FT-6. They exported that to countries like Pakistan, Iraq and Bangladesh.
Instructions are broken into three major steps. The first step consists of assembling everything into - and on - the fuselage. Work on the one-piece resin cockpit tubs (which are nicely molded and pretty detailed) to get them to fit, add weight to the nose (if needed - the instructions don't mention any) then glue the fuselage halves together. Once dry then glue the exhaust fans to the rear exhuast piece and glue that assembly and the nose intake to the fuselage. After cutting the cannons from the one-piece wings, glue those - and the horizontal tail pieces - to the fuselage and you now have a complete airframe.
Aside from the fiction that is the MiG-19UTI, Attack has given us a very nice Shenyang JJ-6/FT-6 in 1/144. In fact, it matches most of the other "larger manufacturers" in the level of detail and finesse. It will look great once finished.
My thanks to Attack for sending the JJ-6 in for review.
