Default New Skymaster Aircraft,when?

Hello,
These last months,Skymaster website has been very quiet.I know Anton and his team are working very hard to develop new planes,but does anybody know when these new aircraft will be available?My workshop really needs a new plane to be built in!!!(especially F86 1/5...).
Best regards.Etienne.

I also wait for the 1/7 F-16,because the 1/6 F-16 is too big for me!

They have a 1/8th F-16 out right now, so I doubt they will be doing a 1/7th scale.

According to our experience,bigger plane are more stable.However,the 1/6 F-16 is too big to most of our flying fields.Therefore the plane about 2 to 2.2M length is most suitable to us.We really hope the 1/7 F-16 from the Skymaster available as soon as possible!

You are spitting hairs here. I can't see that happening. Get a 1/8th. Why in the world would they come out with a 1/7th to sell a single unit? Moreover, all of the aftermarket accessories are geared toward 1/8th not 1/7th. Who are you Goldilocks?

Moreover, all of the aftermarket accessories are geared toward 1/8th not 1/7th. Moreover, they need to compete (on the same playing field) with the other kits that are 1/8th. Who are you anyway, Goldilocks? lol!

There are no less than 1 million different F86's, all sorts of sizes, all fly great, all look great. Pick one and go with it. Is there a particular reason why you want a SM F86? Now if you wanted an F-14, that would be different!

I think he is specifically asking for a 1/5ht scale F-86 which is currently not being offered by anyone that I know of and I think Skymaster is the only one with planes of doing one. So in that case they would be the only one
