Probably an odd question but does anyone out there make decent stancil decals for 1/32 Chinese fighters?  I'm looking at converting a SU-27 to a J-11 but have no idea if such things exist.  I looked over the decals in the Trumpeter J-7 kits and the decals are basic large markings, so not of much use.

 

Thanks,

Matt

Unless some Chinese company does them, I'd say you're probably out of luck

Caracal makes a great sheet but it's in 1/48 and for the Sea Flanker...

Try Georg Eyerman over on Armorama (GreatPumpkin). He makes custom decals at a reasonable price.

Thanks to all.  I found some 1/48 ones that I may be able to upscale.  We'll see!

Just be careful to have good documentation or someone who reads Chinese to tell you which ones go where.

 

Not as bad as the tattoos I have seen of Chinese characters upside down, backwards or just the wrong meaning. At least with a model, you can paint over a mistake. :doh:
