1/72 Special Hobby – Fouga CM.170 Magister “German, Finnish and Austrian AF” – [Kit SH 72373]

The final stage of development of the C.M.8.15 glider led to the CM.170 Magister which was designed to meet an Armée de l´Air specification and like the powered gliders which preceded it this also sported a distinctive butterfly-type empennage.
