Not a SNJ fan, but it looks very well done.

Hope they do a few more in this line..

Please, please NOT A P-51!!!

SNJ ?

I like the model. Nice size. Now i really don't know what to get next. This one....Hyperion's new 109 (whenever it comes out)....or the Graupner's AT-6.

I can't wait to read the threads on this one. If it flys 1/2 as good as the .25 stick it will have a lot of fans.

They need to come out with a P-47 like this and a FW190 in this scale too. I have the foamy 47 and love it. Everyday flyer.

Skyking, the "SNJ" is the Navy designation to the T-6, AT-6, Harvard line. Everyone who used the plane had their own name for it. This one modeled here is the AT-6: the post WWII USAF version. Which was used in the skies over Korea for light attack and Forward Air Contol.

I would love to see e-flite come out with a Corsair along the same lines as the p47. I think a 40 inch wingspan detailed corsair would be great.

I like the looks of this plane a lot. There are a lot of planes in front of this one on my wish list.
