I am all in favor of an F-4 and Mig 21 duel. I definitely plan to pick up the first decent foamy F-4 I can find, and have always kind of wanted a Mig 21 as well.

One word of advice : Retracts!

We all want retracts for our jets. Make your jets have retracts out of the box, and they will fly off the shelf.

Andy, are you thinking of keeping these around the same size as your F/A-18?

how about this, you get the F-4, I get the
Mig 21 and we have fun in the air, in pair.
Sounds great, right?

Also 65mm fan would be fine and nice for
hand launch, but 70mm fan size would be better
for retracts.
I love hand launch though, less issue therefore more fun

Here is your wish, the T-38, coming soon to EJF.
And I am patiently waiting for my Hobby-lobby F-5

Not too bad looking, and I like that it's a single 64mm EDF. Hopefully the red stripes and "NAVY" (!) aren't preapplied, or can easily be peeled off. And hopefully it won't be too hard to make that cockpit/canopy look more like it should.

Yep, I would worry about how good it performs in the air
before I think about any cosmetic issue, as always.

Yes
I will continue this size.
However, I also expect better.
I try to use a higher EDF.
I hope that is a high-speed flight of the aircraft.
And very easily steerable.

Hi Andy,

Something that no one has mentioned yet, but one that I feel will become popular very soon is a F-35 (with Retracts please)

I would also like to see a Twin 68mm or larger EDF Mig-29, Su-37 and a Twin EDF Eurofighter.
