What jets would you like to see sold?

I'm just looking for a bit of input on what the general public considers "hard to find" jets?

We are finishing up 3 of our prototypes and are in looking into doing 2 more this year. We are only interested in models over 5 feet in span so if you can think of a Jet that no one is producing at this scale or at all, feel free to leave some input. We are preferably looking for models that are not currently being produced.

Cheers!!

Are we talking over 5 feet wing span? With the sweeps on many of the wings, we're talking about 80-100" lengths then? Thats some big jets!

Some of the stuff I'd love to see- Gloster Meteor, F8F Cougar, F102 Delta Dagger, A-6 Intruder, F100 Voodoo. Just a few off the top of my head. heh.

I'd like to stay bigger than 60" for wingspan. I love big planes and I love designing them big. For an F18, for example, where the span would be considerably shorter than the length, a slightly reduced span may be necessary to keep the fuse length under 100". Staying truely scale is an absolute must to me so modifying the dimensions is not something we would do.

By the way, all great examples. Keep them coming. (The F8F is already on my list )

I'd love to have a large Russian Yak-23, Yak-36 or for that matter any of the old Russian Yaks maybe a large twin Su-27. Take a look at this website www.nostalgicplastic.com for some ideas. There is some cool hard to find jet plastic models on this site.

See ya-Scott

Mirage2000 or any of the delta wing styles, an F-106 for example
Would be a pretty simple design using only elevons for control.
Big, simple, and hopefully cheap!
