I suppose a Harrier is out of the question....?
I thought there already was a Harrier:

Vulcan..........frig yeah. Twin 70mm with plug in wings. I'm down for that one. Along with many others I'll bet. Would be a decent seller I think. Same with the Mig 25/31.

How about a Victor? Last of the V-bombers with that crescent wing shape?
The Valiant was the first British aeroplane to drop an atomic bomb, first to see combat use (Malaya, as I recall also), Vulcan flew one and only one combat sortie over the Falklands- Sic transit gloria!

I agree. I tried to find a YouTube video of the HobbyKing Harrier and none seems to exist. I would have thought that those little stubby, bent down wings would make such a small model fly like crap and that was why there are no videos around. Not that I would buy one anyway even though the real plane is quite fascinating. The little model just doesn't do anything for me.

I have flown that Harrier loads.....it's a total pussycat and as scale as it doesn't look on the ground..it makes up for in the air, not fast but pretty big.....considering how cheap it is, it's not a bad effort from the factory.
