Does anyone have any info on the E-domodels F-4? Is it a single, or a twin, and what size is it? Will it have any provision for retracts? I am really interested in this one!

we now have 6 generation of jets:
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 4.5 th, 5th.

How about build one jet for each
generation, regardless nationality.
Just base on the performance, the flight
characteristic of the Jet to make decision.

That would be interesting.

Better yet, here's some airframes that really fly well too. They would sell simply on the basis of being so unusual.


Realistically though, nobody will ever make the Fitzer since it poses some additional manufacturing costs and issues. Seems that anything modeled has to come from simple molding processes with no extra mold inserts needed and a minimum of specialized parts required, such as the boom/tail assembly, in this case. All about the easiest money, right?
Nice stuff! Well, companies have to make money, the easier the better I suppose. I haven't started scratch building yet, but inching my way there with some kit bashing. I'm going to specialize in all WWII Luftwaffe stuff with just a couple exceptions. Keep up the good work....

I would like to see a T-38. Too bad your upcoming F-5 is a single-seater instead of a B or D model, or it could be done up as either a T-38 or an F-5. But if it would be possible to produce a variation or an option on that F-5 with a more forward-reaching canopy with the extra seat, that might work.

EJF is going to have a T-38 very soon.
But I like the F-5 Single seat better.

Hey Hobbylobby.... when can I get my F-5????

F-4 Phantom II, F-106 Delta Dart, F9F Cougar, F-101 VooDoo, Northrop F-20, Viper-Jet. Or maybe a Viggen or Drakken? DeHavilland DH-108? Sea Vixen? defuncted EADS Mako trainer.

And like stated earlier, no RTF.

There's a reason that there so many F-16 kits out there (not many foam ones though), they sell. It's the same reason that nearly every model airplane company, including GWS, makes a Cub. Do what ever will make you the most profit. After all, isn't that why any company is in business? If you make a foam F-16 with retracts you will have something different. They will sell like....F-16s.

^^^^^^ Yeah, what he said! ^^^^^^^^^




And while we're naming planes.... how about a B-29, B1B, B-52, C-17, something other than fighters would be really nice too. it would be helpful to stay below a 48" wingspan.

Make a nano EDF Panther to fill the void, because Fantasticjets no longer offers one!

I am currently building a nano pather from espirit440's plans. Making it full fuse to fill the gap in the mean time.

Thank you, everyone
Thank you for giving me the valuable advice.
I will plan to do the F-4 and MIG series aircraft.
I hope to have a good system, things faster.
But I weigh costs and is accepted by the market price.

F-4 vs. Mig-21 would be a perfect pair.
just like the F-86 vs. Mig-15 in the curent RC market
