This interesting release just arrived in the mail today from Max Decals in Ireland. This is set number 7223 and covers the Fouga Magister which seems only right given the great book published by Max Decals on this aircraft (look here). There's a little for everyone in this set and will work with Magister kits from Airfix, Heller, MPM, and Valom.
This decal set comes on two sheets and provides markings for 22 aircraft from 11 countries:
- Ireland: 215, 216, 217, 218, 219, 220
- Senegal: 557, 559
- Bangladesh: 200
- Togo: 066
- El Salvador: 500, 507
- Morocco: 191
- Katanga: 92, 93
- Lebanon: L440
- Finland: FM-21, FM-39, FM-45, FM-77
- Algeria: NT-44
- Camaroon, 1041
This set comes on two sheets, the smaller sheet contains the airframe stenciling, walkways and other markings that are common to all users. The larger sheet has the national and distictive markings that are specific to that user/country.
The instructions provide good paint and marking references as well as an invaluable list of sources for each of these subjects in 1/72 scale. If you're looking for some different markings for your next project, these colorful Fouga Magister subjects are just the ticket.
