Fouga Magister 1/32nd scale project

LKlbalk.gif

Already for quite some time the Fouga Magister was planned to be done as a model by DACO, originally in 1/48th scale but as Kinetic and AMK released theirs meanwhile, I decided to enlarge all files into 1/32.

Basically this meant to redesigns all parts with more details...

This kit will contain more than 450 parts, with separate engines, detailed guns and other armament, specific parts for the various versions, but most of all: it is accurate !

Although all files are finished for some time now, it will still take some time before tooling will be started. Reason: the tooling price is much, much higher than anticipated, and I'm not sure if I can handle this kind of expenses. Hence the market research / questionnaire after the preview pictures...http://www.dacoproducts.com/KDCC3201.php

To have an idea how big the interest in this kit might be and at what price, I would like to ask you to let me know it ...

The Fouga is scheduled to be released in 4 versions:

* French Armee de l'Air

* Belgian Air Force (early version)

* Belgian Air Force (late version)

* German Luftwaffe

All with their correct cockpit instruments and radio compartment.

Just select one of the price ranges, the quantity you might want to obtain and send all info to me by completing the shopping cart.

Any chance of the Zephyr too?

Market is smaller yet there's a "navy aura" so perhaps I guess. First things first, I hope the Magister is financially viable.

Add Irish Air Corps decals and you'll guarantee extra sales in Ireland.

At the ESM at Nieuwegein/ NL last saturday, I met Danny Coremans and he is expecting the first test shots soon. The release is scheduled for Spring next year probably. His new Lightning book is expected for sale at Telford.

Danny Daco The bad news is that the original tooling company hasn't touched the Fouga tooling since their Chinese NewYear (...) so I stopped working with them since last month and now I'mve started working with another tooling company which will hopefully deliver what they promisse...

Danny Daco: I have to restart the tooling from zero through another tooling company, as the company that started it last year is not able to continue/finish this Fouga project of mine... hence a bit the 'no new news' from my side

Well, it's almost back on track... 
I found a new tooling company in China - after the previous one managed to keep this project for more than a year "on the side" - and we are now talking about the technical side of the project.
If the green light is given soon (hopefully this week) and nothing goes wrong, than I might expect to have the first test shots after the summer and the kits on sale just before Christmas 2018...

The Fouga Magister project in 1/32 scale, a highly detailed and very accurate kit of this particular trainer, with more than 500 parts, will become available around March 2019. Another tooling company in China took over this long-due project and has working hard the past 3 months to make it even better than it was. You will love it - I do already!
