Zigolo Mg 12 is a three-axis aircraft with a high wing with 2 struts and 2 jury struts. According to the main configuration it is powered by pushing propeller (see paragraph) or towed to be used as a glider. It has a two wheel amortized landing gear, which is installed almost in the centre of gravity to simplify the movements on the ground, while there is a small wheel in the tail.
The Zigolo has a tubular aluminum frame. The parts are fixed with bolts and rivets.
The whole structure of the aircraft is made from the assembly of the two wings with the central module and the engine support, which all together support the tail.
The controls are operated in the traditional way using tie rods for the rudder and Bowden cables for the pitch and roll. The aircraft has no trim neither flaps.
The lining of the wing surfaces is done in Shrink Dacron cloth with painted finish.
