I do believe that the model to which you are referring, is a kit made in Germany by a new-ish manufacturer called HFF.
They have four models, an Me109, a Giles aerobat, and a P-51 Mustang that are all powered by a Speed Gear FG1.85/Speed400 7.2v motor ( with prop of course ! ) and a model powered by a WeMoTec Mini Fan 480, called the Alpha Jet.
All the models are designed to be run on 8-cell to 10-cell 500AR nicads, and controlled with micro radio set-ups.
I have no reference to any website, which is probably why your search was fruitless, but they are available, in Germany, at:
Der Himmlische Hollein in Lauteral, near Coburg; and also at
Peter Adolfs Flugmodelle, Germany, telephone 02273 940666.
They are also available in England at The Electric Aeroplane Company.
As you are in the US, you may want to try one of the suppliers of Sig kits before ringing abroad, as there is a link between those and 'Der Himmlische Hollein'.
BTW - I know that Himmlische means 'Heavenly', what is Hollein ?
I hope that this is a help to you !
Well, to appreciate the whole of "Der Himmlische Höllein" one should know that in german "Hölle" is the word for hell
Anyway Höllein is my favourite mailorder if not dealer at all.
The Model you are looking for is the Alpha Jet. Manufacturer is http://www.aff-cnc.de and the supplier is http://www.hoellein.de
I've built this model a few months ago as my first EDF and as far as I can tell theres nothing comparable for "beginners".
Easy to built from 1st class cnc-parts, flys well and hand launching (by the pilot, of course) is easy even with a simple Speed 480 race.
Oops. Just saw they also sell it at EAM.

Hell-o there !
Whu-hoooooo ! There's somthing; an EDF that will hand-launch like that ! Yup - that's the model in the pics I have in my magazines !
Things are moving with my EDF 'jet' but I do not expect a performance that will match that . . . I fear mine will need a catapult. )
Oh well ! Perhaps a Mk.3 ?
I love it, by the way - 'Heavenly Hell'
I knew that the chap was called Stefan Hollein - says so somewhere - I just had not associated the two . . stupid *** !
