    I bought this new, excellent metal 1/72 dcale H-6K. There is no model build kit, so I bought this prebuilt metal bomber from China when I sa an excellent deal on ebay for about half price. This aircraft is EXCELLENT.

    Retractable landing gear. Operational aireolons, rudder, and horizontal stabilizer controls. Six pylons with excellent precision guided weaponry and ALCM for all. Operational bombay.

    Very well detailed cockpit. The wheels turn on the gear.

    Simply an excellent job by this Chinese firm.

    The H-6K is an all new, modernized and new build H-6, which is the Chinese liense built SU-16, which the Soviet Union sold the Chinese in the 60s and then they license built into th 80s.

    The Chinese envisioned and now are building the new aircraft with an all new electronic and computer controlled glass cockpit, new composite material making the aircraft lighter and stronger, new engines, new avionics and flight controls, new radar, and six under wing pylons to house six air launched cruise missiles or other precision guided ordinance.

    An excellent use of an older design, updated for modern use.

    Could you just put them side by side? I've never seen a size comparison.
