A model of Chinese aircraft carrier the "Liaoning" has been put on display at a college in Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province, reports Yanzhao Evening News.

Located in the southeastern corner of the Hebei Institute of Communications, the model is 32.8 meters long, which is roughly 1:10 scale of the actual aircraft carrier.

The model has been designed by Ha Jing, deputy director of the logistics department at the college.

Lacking information about the aircraft carrier, Ha Jing has visited Kiev-built aircraft carrier in Tianjin twice.

The construction of the model required more than 50 tons of steel and nearly 10 months to complete.

"Several J-15 fighter aircraft models are still waiting to be installed on the ship to complete the model. Missile and machine gun placements will also be added," said Ha Jing.

He also says he intends to add multiple screens and electronic devices in the main cabin to make the aircraft carrier more authentic.
