Lots of potential to go to town on this one and build the ultimate IAC Magister… seeing as we've see them pop up in all sorts of scales recently!

i don't build planes but i do appreciate what the guys that build them do, and this looks incredible, the fact there is no rudder on it. a two seater and short and just packed out with a lot of instruments camera's and i like the sleek look. It was good to see something different, is this a concept design ? or are they in service.

Hi Tom,
the Magister is a 1950's design built by Fouga who built gliders- hence the sleek aerodynamic lines & lightweight.The V Tail or Butterfly Tail is unconventional in that the aft surface combines the functions of both elevators and rudder with low drag.It was designed as a jet trainer & also used as a close support aircraft with 929 built in total.The Irish Air Corps flew 6 of them between 1975 & 1999.I don't think any Fougas are in active military service anymore but some are still flown by civil operators on the airshow circuit.One cool fact about the Magister - every access panel can be opened with a 50p coin.Still no sign of this DACO kit yet Vince.

Thank you for the information, its great to know people who know the background and now im a little wiser, its one of those that catches the eye and a little off of the norm, and i would have been wrong guessing the age, and one i would like to see

Cheers
Tom
