Hi Gary

It looks nice so far... Is it a Northrop F-5? It's difficult to know at this stagesmiley. Where did you get the plan?

Thanks!

Great stuff Gary yes

I'll be watching. I have found that there does not seem to be much interest in EDF models on here so it will be a change to Spitfires and petrol powered model builds.

I fly a few EDF foamies and building a balsa/ply Jet has crossed my mind a few times so you've got my interest smiley

Hi Gary.

Do you know what model it is? Or is it just a randon, generic 'EDF Jet ?

My little, foam EDF Vampire from HobbyKing is the best fun/£ plane that I've got.

So It'll be nice seeing a 'proper' wooden EDF jet go together.

Hi AVC

It is a sports jet

my build was the inspiration from David Ashby in his editorial, i have the pleasure of flying with David at our local club, and he's been flying some foam edfs which look very impressive and sound quite good !!!!

As i am a balsa basher mine will be in balsa and ply then finished in the normal way

Is this of your own design Gary?

Looks very neat so far,as I've seen from a lot of your builds mainly plan ones you certainly build in that no expense spared quality with all your models! A plan for a sports jet would be great in the mag and would go down a treat I'm sure

Kind Regards

Steve smiley

I think I recognise your build, its Shane Hardings Razor 90 from Traplet isn't it?

I also have the plan and parts ready to start, going to crack on with this over Christmas. Please keep posting updates, I would like to follow your progress.

Whatever it is, it's looking good!

I thought it looked a bit 'Hawk'ish at first but it dosen't matter, like I say, it's looking good Gary. Keep up the good work mate.
