F-20 tigershark jet

Does anyone know where I can find a kit or plans for f-20 tigershark.ideally I would love an epoxy fus & foam wings situation for 60 to 90 power or maybe
EDF.i know about Jet Hanger USA ,but it's a little pricy for me.is there anything in uk like this.
I can't find thorjet and jim fox models also seems to have gone.Im just getting back into all this again after about 15 years.
Any of you guys got any suggestions,they would be much appreciated
Many thanx
Jon.

Sorry didn't read that you live in the UK also as I'm from Canada so I have to be up at 5 AM to call him.The F 104 is very good also I'm currently building one.Should be driving that into planet earth soon as it happens to all of us!

IIRC, many many years ago, Larry Wolfe (Jet Hangar Hobbies) made an F-20 model, I'm not sure whether it went into production, but according to their website,

Jet Hangar Hobbies has other aircraft kits available on a special order basis.
So, long shot, but that F-20 might be one of those.

Just wondering if this is an open invite as I've been interested in a copy of the plan for a long time now?

Hi Russ,
I'm about to start building an f-20 thorpe bros. kit I have acquired, glass fus and foam wings.
Great kit with lots of parts and hardware etc.I am really interested to know if you plan to issue this again?if so what power plants will it be designed for as I'm torn between os 90 gdf or EDF,still not sure!
However I am missing page 28.from the beautiful instruction manual and wondered if there is any way I would be able to obtain a copy from you,I'd really appreciate it!
Anyway I'm really buzzing to know more about what's happening with THORJET.
Cheers
Jj

Hi Jj
The new version will be an epoxy fuzz, so a fraction of the weight. That will make it ideal for EDF.
The kit will come in various versions from EDF to turbine I should get all the paperwork, manuals etc this week, so once I get them I will scan the missing page for you.
In the not to distant future I will create a website for the kits including PDF manuals.
