F-5 w/Alfa fan ( any interest)

I am currently working on a F-5 that will use the Alfa fan unit. It will be approx. 31" long with a 20" wing span. The jet will be fiberglass. I am working on the plug now and hope to have a mold in 4-6 weeks. Anyone interested in one? I will try to get some pics up as the build progresses.

Sounds like a good idea...I am sure there is lots of crashed alfa airframes out there with nothing to put the parts in.

AUW should be between 16-19g. I thought about finger slots for hand launch and then I think.... naaa. But if there is enough interest for a hand launch, then I may just do it. No problem. There is only one fan. Trying to keep cost down. Any other suggestions?

The F-5's turtledeck, if made from fiberglass, could be used as an underhand launching grip. I actually prefer launching my planes underhanded. I'll be really interested to see what you come up with! What's the projected price?
