Caracal Models CD 72095: Dassault Rafale
This next new sheet from Caracal Models is dedicated to the Dassault Rafale. This is France's replacement for the Mirage in French air force service and the F-8 in French naval service. Not surprisingly, the navy got the first planes.
The type has seen a fair amount of export success and that is what is on this sheet. You can do both single seat and two seat aircraft with this set. The recommended kit is the one by Italeri, though there is also a kit or two by Hobby Boss that you might want to consider.
There are a total of nine options covering three nations. The markings on the side of the Egyptian planes reads 'Long Live Egypt'. These options are identical to what was offered in the 1/48 sheet.
