Fantastic news Kursad! I finally got a B last week and have had an M in the stash for a while with no clue as to what kind of markings to get for them. Looking very much to this.

I decided to make this sheet a dedicated one to foreign (non-French) users of the Rafale, while I work on a future sheet with some French subjects. This sheet will have markings for Egypt, Qatar and India; both single and twin seaters.

 

A 1/72 version will be released at the same time.

This is great news Kursad. I must be out of the Rafael loop as I never knew those Airforces had purchased the Rafael. Now to go do the Google thing to see what these schemes look like.

Just make sure you google "Rafale", not "Rafael";)

 

Excellent choice Kursad!

I hope it would be of interest to anyone who wants something different to do with that Revell (or HobbyBoss) Rafale kit instead of doing a French scheme - there  are options for both single and dual seat aircraft from all three operators (the Indian single-seater has not flown yet, but its serial number is included).

Wow those look great. Now I am torn. The Qatar one is very nice but that Egyptian one looks even better. I have 3 Revell kits and one will be French Tiger Meet but then the other two can be these ones from your sheet.

Take note that only RB001 and RB002 Indian Rafale are wearing the fuselage roundel just behind the Canards like French, Egyptian and Qatar Rafale.

From RB003, Indian Air Force Rafale are wearing the fuselage roundel in the front, below the cockpit.

Here is a photo of RB003 taken at Bordeaux Mérignac, France, by Christophe Ornecq on October 30th.

 

Plus :

 

Be careful about the Qatar roundel outer ring : It is not red but purple, the same purple color of the Qatar fin flag.

 

Please include more codes options on your future decal sheet for Rafale of Egypt, Qatar and India.

Hi Guy,

 

thanks for your input - I am aware of all of the point you made, and the decals are designed correctly. The colors on the draft artwork are not the actual colors that will go to print. I will post profiles soon.

As the November release moved into December, any chance of announcing the planned January releases?

From an "OOB" Rafale C can we get a Rafale EQ ?

Externally they should be the same, possibly with some additional antennas etc. You'll have to check your references, but answer is yes.

Seems like a beautiful sheet but Rafale kit cant be found anywhere. Its sold out, out of production or at prohibitive prices on Evil Bay.  😞
