Rafale Marine n27 "Tigermeet 2014" (Revell 1/144th scale)
« on: August 10, 2017, 06:43:27 PM »
The Rafale M #27 received a special deco for the Tigermeet 2014.
Syhart Decals released a decal sheet (1/48, 1/73 & 1/144 scale) for tha aircraft (ref 48/079, 72/079 or 144/079 depending of the scale).
Of course, I will use some goodies from Retrowings (cockpit detail set ref 44040).

The only problem with the Revell kit is the lack of the 1250L reservoirs. My friend Dominique Jadoul gived me the ones from the Trumpeter kit...

First stage of the work: 1250L reservoirs are assembled. Fitting with the revell kit is simply perfect. Then I have removed the flares that are replaced by the ones of Retrowings'set; same with the "croupion"...

First primer - Minor corrections are needed on the reservoirs (putty needed at the junction of half parts)
