Using Irish ingenuity, a greaty big catapult, made from lots and lots of elastic bands (enchanted, of course, by the "little people").

But they do, or will do anyway. They have the PC9s coming along, eventually....

Tophe:
Great! Go on! :thumbsup:

But,beg your pardon, the Magigliders are for  the Air Corps Cadets. They must have already tugs for their old gliders. So where is the problem?

Rheged:
Sure, and it's a wonderful tale and well told too.   Can we assume that  these wonderful machines are painted several shades of green?

PR19_Kit:
Much progress on the Maglider today, in fact the build is almost finished, Dizzy speed for me!

Wings and tail are glued on, with both needing a tad of PSR I expect, and the landing gear's installed. The nose gear was sawn down to a minimum height, and one main gear leg glued into a hole sawn on the fuselage centre line, with both main gear doors used as doors for the new gear bay. A styrene card nose gear door was added as the kit part is about a scale foot thick!

And that's it, apart from paint, decals and gluing the canopy on.
