Airfix’s old but quite nice offering of the Fouga CM.170 Magister. Painted with Tamiya acrylics and finished as an example from the Bangladeshi Air Force.

Beautiful work, Michelle….it would seem you’re partial to Airfix – and to 72nd scale – (too small for ME….unless they’re BIG 72nd scales) 🙁
Michelle Edwards said on December 20, 2015
Thanks, Yes I like Airfix and 1:72 is my preferred scale. I also build in 1:32 and the occasional 1:48. I also like finding bargain old kits like Frog and Heller.
By the way, you should expound on your bio a tad….like where you reside, what got you into modeling (all too rare for females, unfortunately) and a little background info – inquiring minds wanna know). 🙂
Not got around to it yet 🙂

I’ve always liked these little jets. They sound so peculiar! There used to be about five or six that would fly into EAA every year including a black one with thin rainbow stripes (similar to a Christen Eagle) that would make a colorful subject. Unfortunately they had a rough landing one year and I haven’t seen it (or many others) since! The mass balances on the tail must be teensie! Thanks for more photos this time around!
I have a few Magisters to build so who knows what the next one will be 😉
I posted no more photos than I did for my last two builds, I normally only take four or five of my finished builds.

They’re so noisy, Josh, that the three that are out at Chino can’t fly any more. Amazing when you look at the size of their engines.
This is a really nice model – that little kit has aged well.

What a sweet little bird 🙂 ! The Magister has always been a favourite of mine but I have yet to build one!

I like it! I just finished an Airfix Magister recently (http://imodeler.com/2015/11/172-fouga-cm-170-magister/) and never ran across this scheme when I was doing research for it. I did like the IsraDecal set I got for mine – had a variety of versions available so I recommend for one of your next Magisters.
I had never paid much attention to the Magister until I saw the decal set, even though I had one in the stash. Once I built it, I fell in love it it’s simple clean lines and unique look.

Thanks Greg, I have a number to build as I think I have another six or so schemes in the decal pack I purchased.
