Very decent Rafale, just landed
Much better than Altaya,
And Panel lines well engraved, plastic
The nose cone need to be corrected with sand paper
Canopy opens and shows nice cockpit
Waiting for others versions now

Cool. Hope they do operational schemes to. Got room for at least 2 rafales.

May I ask what you mean by plastic tho? Is the model not diecast?

It s half plastic, half metal,
I ll publish some pictures to show you what is plastic what is metal...
asap
The model is quite satisfying, canopy opens as real Rafale
Cockpit detailed with mfd painted
Only flaw is nose cone,

But to me far ahead than Altaya model
And also ahead from x premium
Paint very good, panel lines too

Don ´ t know if it was Made with «*Dassault «* approval
No mention on boxe....

This is a good new, I'm seeking a Rafale (whatever the version, C, B, M) since a long time ago. The model seems nice, compared to HM fighters.

I am also looking at the two Rafale models too.

A check on taobao shows most sellers are selling the two variants at 298CNY.

As luck had it, the seller I checked happens to be HHow Toys, the Shanghai store that I visited in 2017 after my trip to Tibet. I bought a HM Mig-25 from the store. The storeowner is quite a nice guy. His wife is an English teacher.

Do check out the store. Apparently he already sold quite a few units of Calibre Wings F-16 that are due out in December 2020.

Their website: hhowtoys.com.

Sorry about that. I have not check on their website for some time.

But try the taobao link.
https://hhowtoys.taobao.com/

Hobby master gave me the contact when I asked for the Shanghai their retailer 3 years ago.

Unfortunately, its impossible to buy anything on Taobao for collectors from Europe / US.

Taobao system doesn´t offer any option to ship the item to these countries. And contacting the seller is also impossible to ask him if he would consider shipping overseas and how much the shipping costs would be.

Buying on taobao probably needs some taobao agent, or a friend or helpful collector in China.

Ladia,

You don't need to buy thru taobao. Just establish a contact via the taobao link. When I spoke to the owner (I believe the name is My How) in Shanghai he told me he has many foreign buyers.

I just noticed `The Flying Mule` have a Rafale B for November pre-order on their site. Looks like they will be stocking Panzerkampf aircraft along with their armour.
