  2. A great looking Magister!

  3. Nice work on this and a super result.

    Interesting you chose the Kinetic over the AMK. I'd have done the reverse, tho the AMK is more "fiddly." Ce la vie!

  4. Super job indeed, Reinhard!
    I love your spotless head-on view: not many models can stand it.

  5. Great build, Reinhard.
    Nice color scheme for this little plane.

  6. Thanks a lot for your kind words and likes!
