I haven't built the Magnum yet. Behind the Magnum box is another shrike kit I bought from Tower Hobbies. I won't build the Magnum until I finish building the other shrike, which I have plans of trimming in black and chrome with the tail fins tilted inward. I have an idea of changing the elevator to mimic a F22.
I'll keep you posted with pictures.
