Default Model Aviation screws up

If you happen to check your November 2018 Model Aviation magazine, and check the "Focal Point" section (pages 56-57), and that gorgeous, gray and bright orange fighter looking aircraft in the lower right corner of page 57 catches your eye, be assured it is NOT a "VK Cherokee" built by a modeler in New Hampshire.

No, that is my scratch built electric version of Roy Looyenga's "Avenger".

That is a huge mistake. They mess up the layout?

Somebody dropped the ball, and put the wrong description with the wrong picture.

I'm certain the modeler in New Hampshire isn't too happy, either.

AMA's official response to my email:

"Hi Paul,

Thanks for your email. Sorry to hear that that we accidentally provided the wrong information with your photo. "

I think that's about the equivalent of shrugging your shoulders. Oh well, it's okay. They aren't getting my membership renewal anyway. :-)
