[Kit Review] - Revell 1/144 - Dassault Rafale M -

Revell 1/144 - Dassault Rafale M -

The next build, bought after seeing Wiseman_lego's nice looking build on flickr. A very sleek looking French fighter jet developed after droping out of the Eurofighter program. One of the best revell kits available and with no any aftermarket decals available that i can find.

Great amount of detail, the panels and all the screw holes are looking good for the wash.

Looks like the kit could become a two-seater with the single seater sprue being separate but this is an 10 years old release so i don't see that happening  any time soon. But there is the aftermarket, Senworks the only one to do a resin upgrade duel-seater for this with Retrowings meant to be  coming in the future.

Looking forward for your build of this bird it's an most elegant fighter and you'll undoubtedly find that Revell did a stellar job!!!

Skyraider model designs has made a decal set for a 12 flottile bird!

Cheers, it does look like an amazing bird.

Great heads up for the decals, means i can build another in the future. Have this little idea of doing a Charles De Gaulle flightdeck with 2 refales and a Haekeye, but thats far off and i have lots of ideas.

It just screams for a layout like that doesn't it?
