F-15 and F-18

Nice looking Models, all three.

Do you know what the price and shipping for the F-15 will be (in US dollars)? And when it will be available?

Also, what is the price plus shipping for the F-18 in US dollars.

Thanks in advance,

Ron C

Very nice Jones. Can't wait to here the flight report. Judging by the way the bird looks your in for a good flight. Please post video. I know there's a lot of guys out there that have been wanting a mini fan F-15. Good going.

I think that's one of the best EDF F-15's I've seen. Really sharp, and my favorite fighter plane to boot!

Thanks U812 (Steve)

I have been following your F-104 thread for some time.
toyed with 90mm version.

Perhaps we could swap F-104 Fus etc for F-15 Kit?

I will try and arrange a video ASAP once the weather allows

frustrated, grounded,

F-15 test pilot!!!


keep up the good work Steve (U812)

Jones,
I won't be getting to the F-104 for awhile yet. Currently I'm working on a glass kit for the ME P. 1101. But I wouldn't mine the trade once I get to it.
Really nice plane you have there!

F-104

Steve

Oh well maybe I will have a go at the F-104 480 mini fan. I will biuld it in wood (planked) can always take a mould off later?

That will have to wait a while though as F-15 is geneating a lot of interest!

Just say the word on the Me P 1101 and the deals done!!!

That Mig-29 is nice too....
