Default Rc jet manufacturers

Trying to recall some of the older rc jet kit companies from Europe and Great Britain. Does anybody recall a small company that was around during the ducts fan days that was making kits about the same time of Avonds, Aviation Design, Jim Fox, etc? I believe they made a Rafael and later transitioned into turbine kits and may have been based in France or Germany.
What ever happened to D/L aero models and their kits? Also, did Avonds ever bring out his Interceptor sport jet?
Is there a directory available with current r/c jet companies (kits,engines,accessories)?

Glen,
DL Aero closed their doors about 10 years ago. They made some excellent jets, both glow DF and turbine, scale and sport types. Their prices were reasonable with superb quality and very good instructions. From what I understand, Yves had a life-threatening medical issue, he recovered and decided to spend more time with family, etc. Such a loss to jet modeling.
Rgds,

DCU models? I think they made a Rafale, a beautiful F-18, and an F-14.

The mind fades as you get older but didn't they become Jetmart?

not 100% sure. Their F-18 had a beautifully laid out honeycomb skin.
