There are several scratch built CASA C-101 RC Airplanes flying, but we only know of one kit.

The RC CASA C-101 Aviojet kit from BZ-Modellbau builds to a scale wingspan of 57 in. or 63 in. for slower landings. Fuselage length is 65 in.  It has working flaps and can be built for retractable landing gear.  The fuselage is of GFK construction while the wings are balsa sheeting over foam. You will need a minimum 11 lb. thrust turbine or the equivalent EDF for power. All up weight is around 14 lbs.

JCast of RC Groups started a build thread for a RC CASA C-101 Aviojet with pusher prop power.

Jorge Garcia of RC Groups posted a three view drawing and picture from which to build a RC CASA C-101 Aviojet.
