Did they ever make a Magister with a conventional tail?

The number 2 prototype had a conventional tail.



Shiny!

Mustang tail would go well on one.  Tophe?

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I could try a Magister/Mustang mix if I find a profile of this Magister version. Not easy.
Or is this view enough? https://i12.servimg.com/u/f12/09/00/99/77/p1140011.jpg

The Fouga looks good. I just don't see how its engines can drag it out of the water. They aren't exactly over-powered.

Thanks! This is perfect for me to draw a Mustang/Magister mix! (both as landplane and seaplane) <_<
EDIT: I mage these drawings, but I posted them at https://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?topic=4461.2460 not to hijack the thread here, devoted to admiring Ericr's model creations :wub: :thumbsup: :bow:

CL415 & BV138 zwilling, blue : primary seaplanes
« Reply #1013 on: July 26, 2020, 02:48:27 am »

so I found another cheap kit of the He111z, just too tempting

and I plunged into my stash to find appropriate flying boats

(and it is asymmetric)

That is one CLEVER mix!  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Gorgeous asymmetric seaplane! Lovely! :wub:

It is indeed and it's something you could imagine B&V designers toying with after a good night down at the local Beirkeller  :cheers:

Richard Vogt and the boys from Canadair went out on the town and following the consumption
of too many Rye & Gingers stumbled back to the engineering offices and this was the result.
