Fouga Magister - AMK -

Hi Guys,
This is my Fouga Magister, from AMK (1/48 th )
A few comments about this kit :
- the fittings are really good, and even the white metal parts, fits very well with the other plastic parts.
- the level of details is really high, almost at Tamiya level.
- I don't now why, but there is injection molding prints on almost every parts. This is really annoying, to have to fill it with putty. It's the only concern with this kit and I'hope that AMK have solve this problem on their future kits.

I've chosen to use some of the clear parts of the fuselage, to show the inside structure and the engine.
Well....I'm not really satisfied with the results. The inside is not detailed enough to be worth showing it like that. Plus, it makes the painting and building much more complex. Removing one of the engine cowl is fair enough.

Anyway, I'hope you like it, at least....
Thanks for looking.
Didier

Bonjour. Oui je n'ai utilisé que les stencils de la boîte. La déco de l'école de l'air y était incluse. Sinon c'est un très beau kit. Bon montage. Didier

Merci Didier. Hélas les décalcomanies de la Ba701 ne sont plus livrées dans le kit manifestement. Peux tu me dire quel type de peintures métal as tu utilisées pour ce rendu métal (as tu mis ensuite un jus ?) et quelle marque pour l'orange ?

Salut, Toutes mes excuses : en fait j'ai utilisé la planche de la maquette Kinetic (boitée sous la marque Wingman et qui est un bon kit j'ai l'impression) sur cette maquette AMK. Il me reste donc ce kit Kinetic à faire, que je ferais donc avec une autre déco. Coté peinture : Métal --> Alcad sur base noire de la même marque ; Orange : Gunze H14 (si je me souviens bien) sur base Gunze blanche. J'ai ensuite passé du jus, en très petite quantité, pour pouvoir l'enlever. A+ Didier
