The new MiG-17 edf is made I think by AF-Model, and distributed by Hobbyking under the Avios brand,

It is also available as a kit, which does not include retracts or sevos :

A whole bunch of spare parts are listed here :

Some interesting features of this one are the custom retracts (with custom controller) and the use of (presumably more reliable) 11 x 9g analog servos.

The MiG-17 is made by AF-Model ("Air Fly Limited") : www.af-model.com

The full-scale MiG-17 has a wingspan of 9.63m and a length of 11.26m :

whereas the model has a wingspan of 120cm and a length of 142cm, which gives an approximate scale of ~ 1:8.0 .
