Pretty cool looking, just buy a kit and make an extra vertical, or maybe just pay a little extra for a second vertical.

I saw the F-5/T-38 "Great Planes" episode on the Military Chanel the other day. Pretty good video, it`s probably on youtube. It explains some of the evolution of the airframe from inception thru the Tiger II.

It's all doable, just need 10 people to commit, and after I get my family situation settled.

AS been following the big T-38 saga on the Ace in the hole thread. Looks like a great meet I'll make a effort to make next year. Sucks to see they both has issues. I'm still in on your ducts.
I also hope Fahim's dad is still on the road to recovery.

i laid up the first set today ,the preping ,cutting cloth, and doing the lay up took about 2 hrs,it will take atleast one more hour to seam them both,then i'll get pics up . one guy has already made payment so he will get the first set ,i've been holding his money long enough i hav'nt herd from anyone else ,but maybe they are waiting to get there kits from Fahim.they should be shipping pretty soon ...i hope.then i need to start the exhust ducting pretty soon . i need to rebuild my Cars engine so that will take up some of my time .
the big 1/4 scale T-38 that flew at Vegas really cool ,they were very stable and came off the ground at very low speeds. i think the Wow planes size will be really good and have some great performance.if we can get these to weigh between 7-9 lbs we are going to have big smiles on our faces.

Great to see there's still a lot of interest in this project. I've cleared the tables ordered my Jet fan 90 and HET motor and am ready to roll on this. Hope you guys are ready to get your brains picked.

Update

Dad's making progress slowly but surely in rehab, considering he is 92 going on 93. So far so good. I don't want to make any predictions because at his age things can change on a dime. Hoping and praying for smooth sailing though.

The kits were ready and boxed, waiting for plastics from Sparky. They arrived last week but one part was missing, and he has shipped that now. Wife will start shipping the kits as soon as she has the missing part.

I am looking forward to your builds. My build will have to wait till I get back home and go thru rehab myself

Remember: "Everything will be alright in the end, and if it is not, then it means we are not at the end yet"

Good to hear Fahim!

Looking forward to another Wowplanes build.

FYI, the A-10 is still going strong with the exception of the retracts. Just got off the phone with Robart about thier new electric series and sounds really good. More news to follow for sure.
