This is going to be in a make-believe USN evaluation scheme, possibly with red or yellow accents.  The scheme turned out a lot more tan than I was expecting, but I'm going to run with it.  This is a fast build, started 2 days ago.  One of the reasons I love these little kits!

This is the Revell 1/144, with the flaps cut and dropped.  It's a beautiful little kit, very well detailed.

OK, I know I can't stop scratchbuilding. Someday, I will build something OOB....

I spy Kittyzilla, and he doesn't seem to be a Dassault fan :)

That little booger knows to leave the planes alone, but he was mighty interested in the camera strap ;D

The latest Combat Aircraft issue has an article on a bunch of Rafales that deployed onto the USS Theodore Roosevelt for an exercise recently, nice bunch of photos to go along with the article.

Nice aircraft! Watch out for that anti aircraft unit. I hear it's got excellent night vision.;)
Look behind you!

Hahaha...look at the cat ! Cats.....

You're right, that sure does look like a beauty little kit ! I had one of their Lightnings, and couldn't believe how sweet it looked. Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Rafales' are just sexy no matter what they wear  :wub: Looking forward to seeing this with all the markings applied  :thumbsup:

Here are the 'finished piccies.  I lost one of the exhaust nozzles, and it's not looking like it will turn up.  However, I left the 1 unglued, in case I can make something else work here shortly (maybe the nozzles from a 1/144 F-14 I've got somewhere).







I also still need to add the SAGEM bundle there up front,as well.  So maybe 1 more set of pics are coming after this.  Maybe. . .

 :thumbsup: Nice work, and a great idea.
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.
