Being very honest this is an old kit and is a very old kit and I only picked it off because it was in the Black Friday sale I must say that it was the best purchase of any of the sales purchases I made on that day this aircraft turned out to be one of the nicest in my collection as a finished piece. The main reason I bought it was if I irish air corps paint scheme. The finish on this model is exceptionally good and is a great example of War can happened when a model is made well. I would wholeheartedly recommend this aircraft to anyone who wants to buy it even if you are debating whether to buy it or not I would say do and it will pay you back with the joy of assembly

Charming, classic vintage Airfix that still looks good

This kit dates from 1975 but it still builds into a very nice model. Prominent rivets (could be sanded down) but the fit of the parts is excellent.

The Fouga Magister is a delightful little jet, I remember seeing them growing up in Dublin as the Irish Aer Corps flew them up until the late 1990s. The decals supplied with the kit are lovely (IAC or Belgian Air Force) but if you really want to go for some exotic builds then I suggest you splash out on the decal set from Maxdecals; I have just completed a second kit in Lebanese markings (complete with cedar emblem) and my next will be in Algerian markings - the decal set also has Togo, Cameroon, Senegal, El Salvador, Morocco as well as more prosaic offerings for Finland and other Silver Swallows planes (Ireland again).

Highly recommended

Very Nice "Classic" Airfix Kit

My son won this kit for third prize at the 2015 Cosford model show. The moulds appear to date from 1975, and some parts show a small amount of flash (which is easily removed). The overall fit of the parts is very good. The canopy is nicely moulded and fits well, which isn't always the case with older kits. The main parts feature raised panel lines and rivets, but these don't really detract from the overall effect: This builds into a very nice model which fully justifies the new box art (not always the case). Decals are superb, and the instructions reasonably clear. My son thoroughly enjoyed building it, and the result is a delicate looking, nicely detailed model (see customer images - it's the Belgian Air Force version with the grass base and name cut from the instructions). Recommended. Thanks.... Read more
