Model Availability 

Unfortunately there are few resources for commercially available EDF or turbine RC airliners.

One resource is the Norbert Rauch site which offers a series of fibre-glass Turbine RC airliners.

The models are suppliers as part model kits only. All the models are built with the same three initial building blocks. Fiberglass nose & tail cones together with engine nacelles. Foam cores for the center fuselage, wings, horizontal stabilisers & retracts are provided by other individuals who are linked from his site. It is then up to the modeller to complete the model from drawings.
