In an interview with Beppe when he donated the Kwik-Fli Mk. II to the museum, Beppe Fascione explains that his Mk. II reproduction, “was built with other aircraft at the same time, but this one was specifically dedicated to what we members of the Vintage Radio Control Society call Concours. Aircraft prepared for Concours are built exactly to the original drawings, are built exactly with the same materials, the same coloring, the same accessories, and possibly with the same engine, and if, applicable, the same radio. This model since the beginning was very scale.”
One of four events held by the VR/CS the Concours d’Elegance is for “those models that best represent the spirit of imagination, experimentation and craftsmanship that characterized the early days of radio control aeromodeling.” Considering the history of the Kwik-Fli series, the Kwik-Fli Mk. II certainly qualifies.
