Review 1/72 Rafale C by Hobby Boss

Review 1/72 Rafale C by Hobby Boss

The Rafale is a twin-engine, multi-role aircraft designed to provide improved survivability, lethality, availability and maintainability over current Mirage 2000 aircraft. The Rafale aircraft family will be operational well into the 21st century, beyond 2040.

Instruction... very nice, with color profiles...

Clear parts are excellent!

The decals are in register and colours are glossy. (low visibility)

The parts are very nice and surface detail is excellent.

Also are included ‚‚MICA" and ‚‚APACHE" in the box.

Highly Recommended.
