Future standard version for Rafale?
« on: September 30, 2010, 12:11:55 PM »
I have come across these beautiful shots of a Revell 1/48th model of a Rafale B fighter assembled and finished by this unknown fellow.
They are superb. Please observe the CFTs in line with the F-16F Block 60. Could it possibly be a future “F4” standard for the Armée de l’Air?
What you all think?
Personally I think that it looks better then any existing standards. Mostly by examining the shots where the B version is in company of an M version.

With your permission I've changed both my username and avatar. From Flotille 12F to Armée de l'Air.  :P

Hmm, I think they are just "optional" and not carried normally, just like many F-16C Block 52+

It's not a modeller's fantasy. Here's that B prototype with them fitted. The picture is 5-10 years old I think.
