That would be in my budget and I would put it in line with other current projects.

Out of curiosity, how long does it typically take a product to go from inception to releasing it on the market? I will admit, I have been caught up in some hype threads before that never came to fruition; I occasionally also tend to loose interest in a product if it has not been released for over 2 years (take for example the concept of the XPS-16 channel tx; excellent concept for $250, but I am not going to wait on the fence for years for one...).

Just one perspective, take with a grain of salt.

It will take me 2 or 3 weeks from start to have the kit ready to ship.

Fahim
I can backup Fahim on his protoype to release time. If you find his build thread on the A10, he covered i think about July to Sept if i remember on building and documenting the prototype to about when i recieved my kit. The A-10 is more complex than the sleek T38 so yes, it will be short baring any hitches or outside matters that may come to light.

By all means Fahim, please add my name to the order list!!!

I have now two CS 12bld 90's that will end up in the A10 after i do initial flights and finish but thats another time.

Yes you are correct and a clear canopy.

I have started the CAD design & hope to post pictures of the parts as I cut them. Then I will assemble the "foam only" prototype for you all to see if I have captured the scale look. I don't intend on building the 72" flying version for myself.

Fahim, I think I'd also speak for others by saying I'd also like to see a really nice, 90-100 size Hawker Hunter. You'd sell a bunch. Perhaps a Sepecat Jaguar and/or an English Electric Lightning too. Just sayin. LOL.

Lets get the basic stuff first then we can work on the finer details. Fahim does offer a vacform cockpit already for his A-10 which Keith makes and supplies to him.
Yea, Fahim and Keith are already a team on those parts!!!!!! They have already been working back and forth on each others kits and such for some time. I even think Fahim is cutting Keiths MD80 project and a B757
