Kin has been flat out moving house.. ( he didnt sleep for 36 hours in the process)..
Mind you he moved 40 boxes, a wife and 2 kids in that time, including packing everything..
i'm sure he will be back on deck very shortly...

Back here (home ) ! Ha !Ha! The sleep time are increase to 6 hours now , very good ! I have completed the JEPE A-4 , So wait the test fly and the total weight are 2540 g and the change sun fan offer me 2.1kg thrust , so i think it fly so happy . And good point are we included the retract gear set and 3600mah 6s , the weight are 2.45kg . so it should be fly fast and we can successful modification this grass land model to be retactable and the original mold wing are no aileron cutting from factory , but we have change it be a live hinge .so customer only install servo and the horn in the aileron , The retract are gas in -spring out .The first production are Dark blue Blue Angel colour scheme . this pototype colour are wrong , but for testing is ok !

The coming projet are very tight ! see the work start again for a Mi-31 single 90 mm also fully molded hollow mold wing . But the new mold also completed in the same time are system hawk (long nose) for 90-100mm . i lover it very very much , it weight in the photo is only 570 g for whole fuselage , and please see the photo carefully , you will enjoy the light , clean and tidy and fully panel line .We are understand "pay more and get more "(quality) . The Swiss epoxy let we have the very good quality products , But TF /smartmodel will provide very good acceptable pricing in the composite model . let you more fun in the jet models !

Kin is the weight of the Hawk fuselage with formers installed and ducting etc? Or just the bare shell? What is the wingspan and length of the Hawk design?

The A4 weight is very good, its nice to see manufacturers making the effort to keep the moldings light, too many are putting too much resin and structure into their kits ending up with heavy models.

If you look at the pics that go with kins post, it appears that we are looking at the hollow fuse straight from the mold, so no woodwork, formers, etc yet.
Length is 1.5m
Wingspan 1.2m

Will know more such as the all up weight as soon as kin has one assembled...

Great news on the F-20.. I have a customer who wants 2 before christmas is possible..

Duh yeah I see the photos, but as he said "for whole fuselage" I figured asking an obvious/rhetorical question would bring forth more detailed information on construction etc that I am sure all the readers are interested in knowing.

I know plenty who are waiting on the various models coming but I dont feel the need to tell the world about it every time I post...

You asked the questions and I answered them with what I knew from Kin.. Get over it..

As for xmas, this was a very specific request from a customer that he wanted 2 if he could get them by this date.. So to me it was good news, and the customer who reads this thread will also notice it...

sheesh...

Sorry for my meaning "whole " ! Yes! it is the shell only in the pic ,not yet included the wood former 578g but i sure in the limit in the fribreglass models , the glasscloth are very dry , and no "rich " resin . the worker check all the area are not much rich resin before sent to the oven .so the good micro bloom help a lot for the weight .
