The Mini Avanti is $600 so expect this to be in same range but if of the same quality as my Sebart prop jobs might just be well worth it. Oh yes another plus --- it ain't camo.

Any discernible clues from these screenshots?

I'm still on my phone so it's hard to tell.

My guess is foam. The way the guy is carrying the yellow f104 by the wing. I would never carry a balsa or comp wing like that

Foam guys - most likely EPO. I believe Sebart is owned by Freewing these days so expect FW style models...

Sebart is not owned by FW, but FW does produce his foam jets.

hmm I read otherwise. I asked FW why they don't make a Mig 29 and they said that they do through the Sebart company?

Anyhow, where can one buy these ??

This is a quote from a different forum by Mark at Motion RC:

"Regarding the chatter about FN-RC's 90mm and 100+mm F-104, that product will not be distributed here in the US at this point. Not because we wouldn't want to carry it, but because according to FN-RC the 90mm and 100+mm are hand built. Basically they have a guy with a wire bow who assembles kits by hand. At this point Freewing is handling the mass production of the 70mm F-104, along with spare parts assemblies, warranty support, etc, which is why this (70 mm) is the only F-104 we will have for the forseeable future. We'll see in 2017 if that changes".

This seems to be a special build between Sebart and FN-RC, low rate production affair.

It's a Foamy, fuselage length about 1,60m, same 90 mm power train as in the G-91 V2.
Attached pics were made by German RC Network member "f3d". A link to his post with more interesting pics for the EDF community, including the L-39 with the monster Schuebeler fan.
