Is there a 90mm F-5, F-20, or T-38?


I am wondering if someone does an arf for 90mm for the F-5, F-20, or T-38?
Thanks Gentlemen!

Nope, 90mm arf edfs are very few in number. HET does the F-20 for MF480, it's larger than the F-18 but not big enough for a 90 mm fan. A single fan F-5 or T-38 is tough to do, not a whole lot of room in the fuselage, you end up with a pretty big airplane.

I'll bet you are a scale guy, so the thought of making a sport jet look like a "cartoon scale" airplane probably leaves you a bit cold. But, if you bought a V3 El Bandito that's being sold again, you could have a really nice flying jet that looks a lot like an F-5. My V2 El Bandito was called "The F-5" constantly at a recent event becasue I have it painted up in a Southeast Asia camouflage scheme. It's a 90mm Shubi powered airplane and there are a ton of power systems that work well to choose from. I'm a scale guy all the way and I like it alot, it's one of my few sport airplanes. It's not an ARF, and the build is somewhat involved, but it's an extremely solid, strong and straight airplane when finished versus some of the flimsy ARF's out there.

I don't think that they're selling the arf version yet! So i might go with the Eliminator. I need an airframe for a Hacker B5014XL and a shubie fan
You wouldn't know about this setup?

Thanks Gentlemen!
I wanted to re-spark this thread by inquiring again if someone is building a composite version of a 90 or 120mm T-38. Not Bob F. version though it might not be as light as it should be.


Thanks
