Just one big project like one bomber, doesn't cut it. They need suppliers, services, global marketing and such. And high rates.
One day China will do it and they can order their airlines to buy chinese first.
You mean how they already do the final assemblies for A320 in Tianjin? . Yes, most of those goes to Chinese airlines (the only exception I know is AirAsia), but that’s also bc HAM and TLS can’t pump out A320s fast enough.

Maybe a little bit longer than 10 years. We still didn't get to the point where Chinese cars (not counting Chinese owned - western companies) are available in the western world. So it's more like 30 years.
Bc, well, any Chinese that have some money doesn’t buy the like of Geely either. Chinese auto companies are definitely capturing more and more of the “3rd world” market, though.
Also, personally I would watch for their development in Electric Cars. China is pushing that hard, unlike, well, good ‘ol truck loving, the bigger the better, ‘merika.
