The Fouga Magister had been planned for several years to be realized as a model by DACO Products. Originally as a 1/48 scale kit, but when Kinetic and AMK put theirs on the market, it was decided to expand the project to the larger 1/32 scale. However, this meant that almost all parts had to be redesigned, ending with many more parts and with much more detail...
This kit will contain more than 570 parts (400 unique parts), with separate engines, detailed guns and other armament, specific parts for six different cockpit versions, but above all: it is accurate!
More than a year has been 'lost' because a Chinese tooling company was not able to do it, but meanwhile a new tooling company has been involved and everything goes without much problems (even I cannot follow their speed...). So the Fouga ki is expected to surface at the end of 2019. Too late to be the special release on the 30th anniversary day of DACO Products
Below are images of the first test shots, and the second test shots are en route to me.
In the meantime, I'm still running the market research / questionnaire regarding the price of the kit, which you can find at the bottom of the page

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)

As mentioned, no to-be-paid-order is made by doing so as all selections have a 'zero euro' value )
