Drabslab reviews Kinetic's new quarterscale kit of that archetypal Cold War European jet trainer - the Fouga Magister and includes a selection of useful reference shots of the full-sized aircraft.

Drabslab,

Thanks for this review. The kits are impressive to me. The V-tail is an interesting feature. Looks like Kinetic is striving to make each model better.

Drabslab,

Well, thanks for giving me the opportunity to write it.

I "fear" that all other modelling projects will move to the background in favor of starting the Fouga's. That is, as far as new house renovation activities allow this to happen.

As stated in the review, I expect that quite a bit of research will be needed to find the right colors, select the correct parts ...

All progress will be entered to this forum thread so that you can all enjoy my modelling struggle

Hi Drabslab

You've convinced me to buy one of these. It looks a great kit, and two in a box is just too good to pass over! It looks like Harald has a build underway, and Jean-Luc is planning one, so I'm looking forward to seeing plenty of these beauties.

All the best
