Thanks for this. Too bad I'd just done mine, which is Talos only with variable weapons (not Cronos options), but it's one of the best tutorials I've seen and I'm sure it will be useful for others. Two quick things:
1) With the tail, it looks like you drilled into the ball on the end for the magnet. I just trimmed part of that ball off and stuck the magnet on to what was left. I think that's an easier way of doing it.
2) With the arms, you had to bend the plastic to change the weapon options, which worries me slightly. Also, there's no point being able to do, say, chain flails and liquifiers, because this isn't a legal option. So, I just glued the right arm in place and then magnetised left-only, using the three remaining forearms for ACCW, Ichor-injector and Chain-flails (I used my Liquifiers for a Grotesque). Aside from the loss of the Liquifier option, I can make all the possible options with only one magnetised arm and it only requires the one magnet between upper arm and each forearm. I guess this isn't an option if you want to do a Talos/Cronos, but it's probably easier if you're only after the Talos.

No problem, in hindsight I can see that the drilled hole for the Tail was unnecessary.
I can certainly see the benefits of the way which you have done it, though I really wanted to make my kits as flexible as possible as you never know what our next codex will bring for our engines!
I can see how yours certainly make life easier though

For those who don't want to go through and count; -20 magnets total ~12 x small ~8 x big
