The Supermarine Attacker kit is a 1:25 built-up scale, flying model jet.
The Attacker was a single-seat fighter derived from the Supermarine Spiteful. It combined the wings and landing gear of the Spiteful with a new fuselage and tail unit. The first production aircraft, an F1, flew in April 1950 and in August 1951 became the first jet aircraft to enter FAA front line service.

"This was built purely for rubber power. 21.8 grams" - Chris Starleaf
"Here's your Supermarine Attacker, converted to rubber. The nose is clay, for glide-testing. The stab tabs are necessary because the stab incidence is positive about 1 degree in relation to the wing. I'll mount the stab differently next iteration to allow for adjustment. Based on glide tests, I'm sure it will fly." - Matthew Payne
