Either one of those two are a healthy build. I suggest a Juno R/C F-20 Throw a jett 50 up front, some retracts and away she goes

Either the SU-27 or the F-18 are good choices......

Of note... some years ago Alex (AKM owner) built and enjoyed the old Direct Connection F-18 (now the Juno F-18). He learned a great deal from that plane, and subseqently the AKM Mig and Su are build using similar construction.

Both kits are very good. And you will have pleanty of help/guidance right here if you require it.

Both Alex from AKM and Derek from Juno requent this forum as well.

Personally, I kinda like the F-18 myself Just an american thing I think [sm=sunsmiley.gif]

As Cyclic noted, don't overlook the Juno F-20 - its a real nice plane too.
