HL/Star Max F-5


Guys

Parkjets aside, does anyone know if there might be a F-5 coming down the pipe sometime soon?

Something like that BIG F-86 all over E-Bay would be great!

Thanks

Tommy D

Much of the talk in here is about the HL/Star max F-5 so I edited the orig Post/Title.

As you might know already, the F-86 at Ebay is the Fly Fly Models F-86 that can be bought through EJF.com or x-flight.hk.
With the shipping costs and the buy it now price, its about the same as through ejf.com
I'd rather go through a real store then through ebay in that case.

Now, about an F-5...yeah...would be nice to see one big like the F-86.

Looks like the 6mm guys have about the only foam job out there.

The HET model sure is pretty, but also $$$$.

Shame as the model really has nice lines.

Well it looks better than the HET F-20! They messed up the turtledeck behind the canopy and the canopy itself (well the original designer did).

The foam one looks nice...hopefully the main wing spar wont get in the way of retracts (designed in retract mounts would be very nice).
