Rafale 15 of Flottille 12F – R91 Charles de Gaulle – Libya 2011

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Today I started my next kit! It's the Revell 1/48 Rafale M!

I will try to make posts with the step by step build, I am a rookie so bare with me! Also, kind of a slow builder due to my professional life, so sorry in advance!

Let's carry on then!

The kit and mandatory bath!

I want to apologize because, as expected, progress is slow and I can't update this as much as I wanted to, but let's carry on!

After the cockpit i started on the wheel wells!

Nice work there luri. Do like your spray booth. Unfortunately if I tried to do some modelling outside I'd not need glue as the parts would freeze together.

One sexy looking plane looks like yours will be every bit as good as the real thing

Thanks mates!

Col. I really like the hobby best in the winter! So I dream with a room just for me and my future builds! Maybe one day... :pipe:

Coming along nicely.

Moving slowly? Like Hussain Bolt compared to my modelling rate!

Still very flawed but I enjoyed building it a lot! Hope to keep improving!

That's very nice and I would be proud to have made it.

The Rafale is a nice jet, and it looks good armed to the teeth.

What a great looking jet and your tooled up Rafale looks every bit as menacing yet sexy as the original. Great build for your fourth kit, nice one.

Very nicely done! Was that the rooftops of Lisbon by any chance? My significant other comes from Benfica originally :)
