Default Can't decide which plane Help

I'm looking at building my first Propjet. I'm kinda old school and like to build. I've narrowed my choices down to a few I like.
Can't say I'm looking for all out speed, but it would nice to have a plane that flys well fast or slow.
Juno F18 -
AK Models SU-27 -
Ak Models F-16 : I saw the build thread, Will the 55ax really fly this plane okay?

Probably going to pick up a 91fx, but I have a 55ax that needs a home.
If anyone has input on these kits please let me know.
I am flying a Sig Kobra w/32sx while I build my semi-scale jet.
Thanks!

Any of those aircraft are a good bet. All look good, fly well. Importantly, they are all documented here as build threads.

Using the 55ax is possible ..... with the jett muffler on it, it really performs well. But you have to watch the aircraft weight that is where the real carrot is in that trade.

Thanks,
I decided to go with the AKM F-16, The weight seems more in line the w/55AX. I will difinitely be running the Jett.. If I can scrape up the pennies in the future for a Jett engine, what would you recommend? Something tells me this will be slow build, so I have some time.
