Im In love with this T-45 Goshawk

I have been fly for a while and I want my first Jet for christmas. I love the looks of this, what you guys think?

The T-45 Goshawk is a highly modified version of the BAE Hawk, land-based training jet aircraft. Manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (Boeing) and British Aerospace (BAE Systems), the T-45 is used by the United States Navy as an aircraft carrier-capable trainer. Sapac America's true-to-life scale design with authentic paint and decals give this plane a very realistic appearance. The T-45 Goshawk is consequently designed as a very lightweight composite and balsa/ply built-up structure, with features similar to a world class F3A-Pattern plane. Lightest lay-ups, perfectly engineered aerodynamics and structural reinforcements only where they are needed; this model is perfectly suited for electric ducted fan flying. The pre-installed fiberglass intake ducting is engineered for efficiency and pure performance, making this aircraft capable of extreme speeds with just the supplied motor and fan system. ARF lets you use the provided fixed landing gear system, but it's also designed for the optional Sapac RZ180 pneumatic retract system. The T-45 comes with a full hardware package, illustrated instruction manual and optional rudder upgrade package.

The Sapac T-45 Composit is lighter than the average model plane of comparable size with features similar to a world class F3A-Pattern plane. Model performs loops, inverted flight, rolls and other aerobatics with ease. Knife edge maneuvers are with absolutely no in-flight coupling.

Special Features:
- Control surfaces: Ailerons, Elevator, Flaps and Rudder (Optional)
- All balsa/ply built-up wing construction
- Fully pre-painted composite fuselage
- One piece removable wing design
- Transparent removable canopy w/cockpit
- Fully illustrated instruction manual
- Ready for air operated retract installation
- Sapac 70mm EDF w/D2842-3200 motor included
- Fiberglass pre-molded ducting system
- Complete hardware package
- Custom decal sheet
