F-16 Fighting Falcon EDF F-16 Fighting Falcon EDF
By Steve McBride
What this model does best is simply look great in the air doing a fast split-S into a low fly-by, just a few inches off the ground. If you have some sport plane, aileron experience under your belt, this model may be the ticket if you are looking for an EDF for some small field air-to-air combat.

EAM DeHavilland DH-88 Comet ARF EAM DeHavilland DH-88 Comet ARF
By Slope Nut
I have to say that this airplane is top-notch quality in nearly every respect. It was designed exactly as I would have built it if I had done one from scratch myself. I was surprised at how well done and well thought out the kit actually is, including the quality of wood used and the finish of the covering as it is applied.

Fan-Tastic F-86 Sabre Fan-Tastic F-86 Sabre
By Floyd Getz
When it became known that GWS would produce an inexpensive ducted fan unit, the EDF-50, it was only a matter of time before folks with imagination and know-how started designing and producing kits to utilize it. One of the first to do so was Texas-based Fan-Tastic Models with their F-86 Sabre.
