[Kit Review] - Revell 1/144 - Dassault Breguet / Dornier Alpha Jet -

[Kit Review] - Revell 1/144 - Dassault Breguet / Dornier Alpha Jet - Box Front

The original release of the Alpha Jet by Revell which includes the "banana effect" which really should have been fixed with the recently released "Patrouille de France" version.

This will be the one i model, prefer the green plastic and some of the detail is a little sharper.

Exact same sprues as the blue Alpha, either the mold was fresh or the darker plastic but im sure the detail is better on this model. Notice the "banana effect" on the tail end fuselage.


Detail does look more pronounced, maybe just because of the darker plastic.


This will be the scheme i will model, the RAF style Alpha Jet's bought from the Luftwaffe by British defence contractor Qinetiq original kept all German marking but replaced the German cross with RAF roundels.


Next review Retrowings cockpit detail set.
