Max Decals Magister decals are available online from Squadron.com




International modellers should be grateful that Ireland used Magisters. This link between Ireland and the Magister has spawned two decal sheets with an incredible range of markings for the ungainly-looking jet trainer.

Each set comprises a single A5 decal sheet jammed with Magister markings. The 1/72 scale sheet needs two A4 pages to list the various schemes and markings, while the 1/48 scale set manages to cram its instructions onto a single folded A4 sheet.

Check out Max Decals website at http://www.geocities.com/Maxdecal for the range of schemes on both of these sheets in full colour. 

Registration on both of my samples is perfect. This is no mean feat as the markings are quite small, especially on the 1/72 scale sheet. National markings and stencil data is included on both sheets.

The 1/72 scale sheet includes markings for the following:

  • Germany 
  • Togo 
  • Gabon 
  • Morocco 
  • Bangladesh 
  • Lebanon 
  • Katanga 
  • Irish Air Corps Silver Swallows 
  • Finnish Air Force



In 1/48 scale, the following are covered:

  • Gabon 
  • Togo 
  • Bangladesh 
  • Ireland 
  • Finland

These are two very impressive decals sheets that will appeal to anyone considering building a Magister in 1/72 scale or 1/48 scale.


Thanks to Joe Maxwell from Max Decals for the review samples
