Thorjet kits

Thought I would post to let everyone know

I have now bought out Thorjet kits, the Hawk and F20 will be re released very soon with EPOXY composite fuselages (Very light)
The F20 wll also have CNC cut formers.

Other projects will be a wren 44 sized hunter

I have taken over the kit side, Thorpe brothers still produce the plans and parts for the Starfighter.
Let me know what you need and I will be able to get it for you.

Thanks XAirflyer, the new version with the epoxy fuzz should be superb. I'm looking forward to building and flying one myself. I know Wren did a turbine conversion and it flew very well.
