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 570 parts (400 unique parts), with separate engines, detailed guns and other armament, specific parts for the various versions, but most of all: it is accurate !
More than a year has been 'lost' due to a Chinese tooling company not being able to do it, but now a new company has been contacted and if everything goes without much problems than the Fouga kit might be expected to reach the surface by the end of 2018.
Meanwhile I'm still running the market research / questionnaire regarding the kit's price, which you can find below the preview pictures...
Here are already some preliminary sprue layouts :
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 will be released as one box with six cockpit versions:
* French Armee de l'Air
* Belgian Air Force (early version)
* Belgian Air Force (late version)
* German Luftwaffe
* Israeli (early version)
* Finnish Air Force
All with their correct cockpit instruments and radio compartment.
Decals are still to be done, but a nice selection of various Air Forces will be given.
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.
(no additional amount will be added in your basket)
