New wooden ARF`s

Dont know if you have seen these before, but the are from the Toy fair in germany at the moment.

Some cool stuff.:

Flitework Mirage 2000B-OV
1.3m span, 213cm length and around 7kg with a 120mm fan

Phoenix Models Saab Gripen and F-18
1:7 100cm span and 161cm length for a 90mm

1:6 129cm span and 1778cm length for a 120 or 2 90mm fans.

The Gripen looks cool, but the F-18 seems to be a little of a miss......at least at the angle the picture was taken

I agree...they would have been better off calling it a Sorta Hornet

Ha! if you look at the name plate in the picture it's called a Thunder Streak, not an F-18

Generally things at the toy fair are a year out from actually being available anywhere let alone the US.
