The Build:

Notes

  • OOB,
  • Scratch built seatbelts,
  • BAF decals - Airfix 1975,
  • Re-scribed panel lines,
  • Paints used: Revell enamels/luminescent & acrylics, mr surfacer 1500 primer, mr mark setter & softer, old humbrol enamel, Klear, W&N artists water colours+oil paints, vallejo wash, Alclad,
  • Fading orange was done by first having an acrylic yellow base. Then removing the enamel orange by rubbing a brush with thinner over surface.

 

The result.... 😎🥳

A beautiful pair of Fougas and thanks for sharing that tip on how to get a faded dayglo orange - I will try that myself some day!

Good luck spraying dayglo. Its not easy, reason being it's semi opaque. So it takes many coats to built it up nicely. My plan was to sand it off lightly revealing the yellow but it was so thick.. i couldn't get through to the yellow. Using thinner was discovered by chance when i tried removing a stain 🙈

Great job!👏 My favorite airplane

 

Me 2, I've fallen in-love 🥰 with the Magister!

Hmm Thinking of getting the Zephyr now?

I have a left over SH kit with African decals if it is useful for you? It just has a couple of minor parts missing. PM me if interested. It’s a beautiful kit :).

An excellent build and finish, unrecognisable as the ancient Heller kit !

Thanks ive developed a bit of a penchant for building these old 1:72 kits!  They are so crude and simple, they go together quickly. But when it comes to markings they are a disaster and very unclear.

Two beautiful builds. I recall many happy days at the Biggin Hill Air display back in the 60's and 70's watching the Belgian Red Devils fly their Fouga Magisters. The French Patrouille de France also had them at that time. Fantastic aircraft!

Looks great, the Heller kit has aged well, very impressed the Airfix decals went on so nicely. A superb build!

Why so Colin? Ive never had problems with Airfix 1975 & 1973 decals. They go on pretty easily and actually look "painted" on.

We’ll, Adrian, you did well with this dayglo finish :). The options on the SH kit cover a number of camo finishes too ;). The offer is there.

Speaking of red devils, this aircraft - MT10, flew with the red devils and it crashed while flying in this team.

"13.05.65: Cat.5 Crash at Bevingen-Kerkom during a traning flight by the Red Devils-demoteam. The pilot, Kapt.vl. Roger Van D'Helsen, is unfortunately killed."
