Model Aircraft Kits in current production
This section will be devoted to Jetex/Rapier kits which are currently available. The kits can be from established concerns like SAMS Models Aerographics, which concerns itself with new kit designs like the Sukhoi SU-11 or Flitzer; Bluebottle Squadron which has a mixture of new designs like the Bell 1XE, and old ones like the Twizzler, and The Vintage Model Company which ( http://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/jetex-powered-models/page/1/) produces replicas of classic Veron and Keil Kraft kits from the 1950's.
THere is more out there than you would think!
In time I hope to feature all the kits that are available today , with comments on their suitability for Rapier L-2, L-1, vintage Jetex 50, etc and ease of building and trimming.
It is in the nature of Jetex/Rapier scene that, given the difficulties of flying with genuine Jetex motors, and the recent problems with Rapier availability (now happily being resolved, at least for the UK and the EU) that small scale manufacturers appear on the scene with some nice products, but then, just as quickly, disappear.
Jetex.org hopes to increase the awareness of Jetex-related products and, hopefully, increase the commercial viability of producing what could be called 'small Jet Plane Kits' .
This task will be immensly helped by the contibutions of others, so please contact me with your findings and observations.
Given this, I hope we will soon see Aerographics, Bluebottle Squadron and others making their splendid rocket powered models readily available again.
Watch this space!
