  2. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Nice one Robert, too tell you the truth, this one is like the sixth one I have seen. Not a much seen aircraft. Thank you for sharing these images … 🙂 .

  3. I want one! I built Emhar’s FJ-4 (also a rudimentary kit), and I think it needs this sitting next to it to show lineage!

    Nice looking build you got out of the kit.

  4. Neat little model there, Robert, is this a recent build?

  5. Good looking model Robert.
