Andromeda looks an Estes ďbring backĒ candidate to me - simple nose cone, no special plastic parts from long worn out or thrown away molds, plenty of the kinds of Sci-Fi detail that Mr. Boren seems...

The F-16 is on my build pile. If the 104 kit is made up of components as nice as the 16ís itíll be a worthy squadron mate.
