CM.170 Fouga Magister . . About this Moc This is my lego version of the fouga magister two seat french jet trainer.I built this moc as an entry for Jamie Hewitt's contest....i really like the way this moc came out and i especially like the jet intakes nose and color scheme,although i think the wings are just a little too far back and it would have been nice if it had landing gear.......also surprisingly this moc didnt take up as many pieces as i thought it would although i have been thinking about maybe building an A-6 Intruder or an A-10 thunderbolt but that isnt certain,still if i did decide too build one of them i would prbably have too take this apart :(.....anyway i really like it and i hope you like it too... A Brief History of the CM.170 Fouga Magister The Fouga Magister (company designation CM.170) was a 1950s French two-seat jet trainer, and the world's first purpose-built two-seat turbojet-powered trainer aircraft. The related CM.175 Zéphyr was a carrier-capable version for the French Navy.In 1948, Fouga designed a jet-powered primary trainer called CM.130 for the French Air Force (Armée de l'Air, AdA) to replace piston-engined Morane-Saulnier MS.475 aircraft. When AdA found the aircraft lacking in power from the two Turbomeca Palas turbojets, Fouga enlarged the basic design and used the more powerful Turbomeca Marboré engine. The distinctive V-tail of the new CM.170 Magister originated on the CM.8 glider Fouga was using to experiment with jet engines. In December 1950, AdA ordered three prototypes, with the first aircraft flying on 23 July 1952. A pre-production batch of ten were ordered in June 1953 followed by the first production order for 95 aircraft on 13 January 1954. Fouga built a new assembly plant at Toulouse-Blagnac to produce the aircraft. The aircraft entered service with AdA in 1956. Due to different industrial mergers, the aircraft has been known as the "Fouga CM.170 Magister", "Potez (Fouga) CM.170 Magister", Sud (Fouga) CM.170 Magister" and "Aérospatiale (Fouga) CM.170 Magister" depending on where and when they were built. The French Navy's Aeronavale adopted a derivative of the Magister, the CM.175 Zéphyr, as a basic trainer for deck landing training and carrier operations. An improved version of the Magister designated the CM.173 Super Magister was produced from 1960. It used a more powerful Turbomeca Marboré IV engine. Production of the Magister stopped in France in 1962 but continued to be built in Finland up to 1967. The development of the aircraft came to an end when the French Air Force selected the Alpha Jet as their new jet trainer. wikepedia.com
