  1. I'm joining in with a Finnish Fouga Magister using the Kinetic 1/48 kit and Kuivalainen decals. I'm going for a quick(ish) build as I'm going to get pretty busy once the In The Navy and Lancaster GBs are going at the same time! Actually started this last Saturday but only just got round to posting. Here's the box and unopened bags of sprue (there are 2 kits in here): And here's where I'm up to. I've kept things simple in the cockpit - just a bit of dry brushing to bring out some of the detail. The jet pipes and intakes have compressor and turbine faces in them, but they really aren't visible. So far so good, although it looks like getting the fuselage together might require some adjustment of the cockpit parts. cheers Julian

  3. Hallo again This is my Zukit from the IAF in 1/48. The kit was FM. The only Fouga Magister to get. The kit was a horror experience and it took me a half year with breaks of course. Long periods of thinking how to proceed or to the garbage? We saw the original in Israel, in the sky and on the ground. Happy modelling
  4. Hi, here's my latest finished build. Just a quick SFTB with Max decals. I still can't get canopies to be masked and painted right. Nice easy build, not my best but looks ok from a distance! FF
  5. Hi All, A selection of Fouga Magister subjects have been scaled up to 1/48 scale to suit the new Kinetic/Wingman or Avant Garde kits. Max4823 is now available to order direct from max Decals at 12 euro including worldwide postage. See Max Decals shop for ordering. Cheers, Joe
  6. Press Release New Book: Fouga Magister - An Irish Perspective by Joe Maxwell & Radu Brinzan details the history of the Fouga Magister in Irish Air Corps Service from 1975 until 1997. Contact: joe@maxdecals.com See http://www.maxdecals.com Fouga Magister- An Irish Perspective provides a highly detailed account of this iconic French built jet trainer in Irish Air Corps service. Starting with the development of the Fouga Magister as a light jet trainer for France and other NATO countries, the book goes on to describe the attack on Irish troops serving with UN forces in the Congo in 1961 by one of these aircraft flown by a Belgian mercenary in the Katangan Air Force. This was the first time that Irish troops had ever come under air attack. The later, and somewhat ironic, purchase by the Air Corps of two of the Fougas that had originally been destined for Katanga together with four others that had seen service with the Austrian Air Force “Silver Birds” Aerobatic Display Team is also covered. Further chapters describe what it was like to fly and maintain the Fouga. The history of the Irish Air Corps Silver Swallows Aerobatic Display team is covered in some depth. The Silver Swallows became famous internationally when they were awarded the prestigious Lockheed Martin Cannestra trophy for the best display by an overseas team at the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford in 1997. This was an incredible achievement for a small team of instructor pilots who had to fit in practice for their routine in the evenings and at weekends. “ Initially we set out to produce a straightforward technical description and walk-around of this elegant aircraft that would satisfy the scale modeller. However, as the research trail lead us to unearth almost forgotten facts about this intriguing aircraft in an Irish context we just had to expand it into a more comprehensive volume which we hope will satisfy the needs of the aviation enthusiast/historian as well” said Joe Maxwell, one of the authors. Joe has teamed up with another well known aviation author, Radu Brinzan to produce this volume. Although the authors have concentrated mainly on the Irish use of the Fouga, the technical description alone should ensure that this book finds a wider international audience amongst those interested in the Fouga Magister. Granted unparalleled access to three surviving airframes, the authors have included what are considered to be the most accurate scale drawings of the Fouga ever produced in both 1/72 and 1/48 scale. Comprehensively illustrated with over 160 photos, 25 drawings and three tables packed into 108 pages, the authors have produced what must be the definitive English language guide to the Fouga Magister. Fouga Magister – An Irish Perspective goes on sale from September 7th. Price €22. ISBN 978-0-9562624-1-7 For further information contact Joe Maxwell at joe@maxdecals.com See http://www.maxdecals...booksample.html for sample pages.
