Ton, that's a nice-looking model! Very impressive!
I don't see anything similar on Google, so it will be interesting to see what turns up.
The design is by Ray Jones,
You can google: ray jones dragon aviations.
Here you can read more about this plane.
If you ever find a shop wich sells it please contact me.
Wasn't this originally a slope soarer? (PSS)
yes there are models like this that are slope soarer but the model i have issn`t .
The weight off the plane i`ve got is 2.5 kg (motor incl) so much to havy voor a soarer.
Look on the site i wrote down before thereyou can see both kind of planes
Ray Jones Dragon Aviations.

I`ve you ever speak to somebody or when you have anymore info about the plane please contact me.
I already was looking here in the netherlands also but havn`t find anybody yet
who can tell me more about the plane and set up
Dragon Aviation have relaunched two of their most popular PSS/Power scale models. Proprietor, Ray Jones designed both kits in the mid 1980's. Both the Aermacchi MB 339 and the Fouga Magister were an instant success. But, after an adverse reaction to the moulding process, Ray had to give up production.
But now Ray has found a glass fibre fabricator to mould the fuselages, and so Dragon Aviation are now pleased to announce the relaunch of these popular kits. Both aircraft can be flown either from the slope or under power. In fact, Ray says "With the development of small Wren Turbine, these kits could be converted to fly with these latest gas turbines".
The Aermacchi MB 339 with its classic looks is without doubt one of our best sellers. The model can be used as a fine slope soarer (P.S.S.) or powered with 40/61 two strokes either version the model is smooth responsive and predictable (68" span with tanks).
This comes in two versions, standard and deluxe. The standard version has everything except the accessories (hinges horns etc.) and the wood aileron stock etc) all standard items and easily obtainable. The fuselage, which incorporates the fin, is constructed from epoxy resin making a light and robust item, the wing root fairings front console and canopy rim are all moulded in saying the builder time. Wings are supplied in foam with obechi skinning, tip tanks, nacelles, canopy and a decal set, cockpit instruments and a template sheet are all supplied in the standard version.
The slope version has performed faultlessly with many competition successes to its credit. The E205 wing section works well and will fly in 12/15 M.P.H. winds however, with a servo on each aileron and either a mechanical or electrical mixer incorporated (flapperons) some incredible results can be achieved. Rudder was not used on the prototype glider, however this item was fitted to the power version. A standard 40 engine was used on the power version and this gave a sparkling performance, the model was used with a fixed undercarriage but there is room for the more ambitious to fit retracts with a 46/61 two stroke motor. Flying the MB 339 in either version is a very rewarding affair and most manoeuvres have been carried out with great success. Anyone with a little aileron experience should have no problems, however in experienced hands the model can give a very impressive performance.
Basic controls are elevator and aileron (glider) and elevator aileron and throttle on the power version, rudder flapperons, airbrakes etc. can be added by the builder to choice.
Spares are always available to keep you in the air.
The delightful vee-tailed Magister has looks to match its performance, there are two versions slope soarer, (P.S.S.) or power, however customers have purchased the kit to convert to electric and even ducted fan (no details available) 72" span.
Fibreglass fuselages on both models. However the power version has a separate cowl, manufactured in Epoxy. The wings and tail halves are supplied in obechi skinned foam. And all flying tail plane is used on the soarer version, however an elevator set up is used on the power model. Besides the above items a tail cone, tip tanks, canopy, decals and a template sheet are supplied in the standard kit, the deluxe version includes accessories (hinges, horns etc.) plus pre-cut wood.
The glider version has excellent handling qualities, scale like manoeuvres are possible and with the modified E374 wing section and can be flown in light winds as well as the "usual" howling gales.
The prototype power version used a standard two stroke forty engine, and would do the "book" scale type manoeuvres and quite a turn of speed at full throttle, 46 and 46 four strokes have been used with equal success. No vices were encountered on either version. Besides the basic controls A.M.T. ailerons (glider) elevator aileron, throttle (power) an assortment of auxiliary functions could be used such as ruddervators flap/flapperons/air brakes to suit the builder's requirements.

Today i was on the phone with Ray Jones the designer of this fouga.
I`ve got his E-mail adres and i send him the pics i have and the questions.
Ray is no longer building this plane but a friend of him who lives in Ireland is now making the malls of the fouga.
I had a very nice conversation with ray and he said he`s going to help me with all the information he`s got and pictures and he is going to send the mail further to his friend in Ireland.
So i`ll wait and see.

The fouga Ray has made were a little bit bigger.
Also Ray mentionent the name Robbe germany so my i send them an E-mail.
Waiting again and still nobody knows this plane
To be continiud.
Just been reading your posts about the Fouga Magister, and I see that Ray's PSS jets have been mentioned, also the company who supplies the jet in Question. O.k. hopefully I can answer a few of your questions!
The Person in Question from Ireland, is myself 'John Pearson'
1. The two Models designed by Ray Jones ( Fouga Magister, M339) as supplied by Dragon Aviation some years ago, will be soon back in production under the banner of Island Models, a company based in Dublin, Ireland, which supply a range of scale gliders. www.islandmodels.ie
2. The model shown in the post is not Ray's design, (it is two small). I think that your Magister is a German kit supplied by RC-Tronics-Topp-Rippin.
Here is the link to the kit:
Hope this helps
Thx for your info...you`re right!!
The pictures from Rc-tronics (the link you gave me) shows the fouga i`ve got.
Finaly i can get any further.
Long live the internet!!
Thanks thanks thanks
Also all the other members of this forum who shared there info thx guys.
Got a E-mail from Topp-Rippin (Germany) they say the size off my fouga issn`t the same size off their plane.
They ask me to call them to we can check if they are the same or not.
Will call, them tomorow.
If there plane is smaller i still will get there build plans and see if they can get me any further.
My love for this beatiful plane is realy tested but she will have her maiden!!!
