"Here are some pictures of the Easybuilt Auster that I built while stationed
in Korea. The model was a bit of a challenge to build but thanks
to your help it came out great! This airplane also turned out to
be an awsome flyer, consistently doing 45 seconds in dead air. Lost
it when it landed in some really tall trees so I'm ordering another
one!" - Javier S. Amador
