Welcome!

Welcome to the Philip Avonds Scale Jets website! You will find detailed information on our line of products (jet kits, landing gear and scale accessories) and a lot of other information (competitions, nostalgia etc.). Have fun!

 

New jet trainer: Interceptor

You may have noticed the new jet in the row of pictures heading this website. It is our new jet, the Interceptor. A picture of the concept model is shown below. The Interceptor is a purpose designed jet trainer for the 90mm diameter class of turbines with thrust ranging from 60N to 100N. It is probably the best jet trainer available today. Read more...

Jet kits

We have updated most of our kit descriptions, starting here.

EDF

Our jet kits are quite popular amongst EDF enthusiasts. As four of our jet kits (F-104, F-16, Old F-15 and Rafale) were designed initially for IC DF, they are also suitable for EDF. Read more...

New Price List

Now some less good news... Our price list remained unchanged for over a decade but the economic reality forces us to alter this policy. Prices are driven by material costs, production costs and labour costs and these have all gone up, so we must follow with a price increase on our products. The updated price list can be found here.

Custom builds

We have set up a new custom building service.  If you don't have the time, the skills and/or the infrastructure to build one of our kits, this may be a solution for you.

 

Own fibreglass production

We have relocated the production of the fibreglass components for our kits. This is now entirely done in house. The biggest advantage is that quality control is now better than ever before. A drawback is the limited production capacity. Our kits were never mass produced, so they will become even more exclusive now.

 

Fouga back in Beauvechain sky

In September 2007, Lt Col Paul Rorive made the last flight in a full size Fouga Magister serving for the Belgian Air Force at it's home base Beauvechain.  Five years later, this event was commemorated with a barbecue where I was invited to present my model Fouga Magister. It was an emotional moment for all the Fouga fanatics and especially for Paul, to see the Fouga perform again in the Beauvechain sky. Full report here with thanks to Serge Van Heertum.

Fouga 6-view scale drawings

Our 1/48 scale 6-view drawings are now available for download in PDF format (see copyright note below). They depict the Belgian Air Force version with the typical white painted aft canopy, the cooling scoops and air exit louvers. We honestly think these are the most accurate scale drawings of the Fouga ever published worldwide. Judge for yourself!

Furthermore, a new MMP book is released, which incorporates my own super detailed versions of the drawings available for download above. They also incorporate colour profiles based on the same drawings. The title of the book is Fouga Magister by Tine Soetaert.

Finally, Airdoc published a new book on the Fouga in German services. It also incorporates my own super detailed drawings and colour profiles based on the same drawings. The title of the book is CM 170R Magister in German Services by Gerhard Lang.
