Ok silly me has decided to build another on for this GB, it wasn’t planned but I will have some time and it’ll help reduce the stash. Ok I got this at my clubs yearly auction last year. That stupid box was the first to go and the sprue was chopped up to fit into a smaller and sensible box, so I had to source another box photo! It’s actually not a bad looking model….especially for the prise I paid $10. Ok me being me some things needed to be replaced, exhausts and wheels. Being that there’s not a lot of difference between the C & M models of the Rafale I can use the PE sets from the C model. The Revell cockpit decals are rubbish. I wasn’t too impressed with the plain grey scheme and as luck would have it, Syhart do a nice set of Tiger Meet decals for her, so that’s the scheme I’ll do. The one issue with doing this scheme is the centre drop tank fitted to this aircraft was the smaller 1250L one, the model only comes with the 2000L tank. But as luck would have it I just happen to have a Rafale C in the stash which has 3 of them in it! It should be a straightforward build the only problem area in the intakes…there’s no intake trunk provided just a gaping hole into the fuselage, so I may just blank it off or make intake covers.
