Hi all,

I thought people might like to see the latest model to come from the Jims Jets stable.
Following on from the 90mm sized EE Lightning, Jim decided to kit exactly the same model, but this time in a very handy size for 70mm fans.
1200mm length and 800 wingspan (or thereabouts, I haven't received the kit yet) make this a great size to fit into the car in one piece for some superb 1960's/70's/even 80's style jet fighter action!

I'll update this thread as I go along, but construction looks to be super-quick!

I guess it is a rework of the GAD F6. Should fly well.

It's a scaled down version of the 90mm F6 designed by Jim Gordon who I believe did the CAD drawings for Greenair.

This one:

We now have a kit of parts to make a proper start!

The 3D printed canopy hatch is for the prototype only, put the other parts are the final set.
