Default French Fighter Fun

I rarely add non-U.S. military aircraft to my collection, but I am very fond of these two French birds. I've had the Mirage for some time now and just added the Rafale.

Hobby Master (HA1614B)
Mirage 2000 5F

Panzerkampf (1461B)
Rafale C

The Hobby Master Mirage is already known by reputation. The Rafale I am pleased with. A little difficult to insert the landing gear as one of the struts was misaligned, but I got it done. There is a fair amount of plastic on the Panzerkampf model but the detail is quite nice.

Got mine on eBay - Modelarena was the seller. I bought from them a few times and always had success. Still available for about $63 US + Shipping.

Thank you for the info.
Unfortunately, Modelarea does not ship to my country.
I will keep searching eBay regularly, eventually I will find one.

Do not know if it is a real Panzerkampf model or a cheap knock-off!

When I bought my Rafale I debated getting this one, but did not care for the the Rafale logo on the tail. I think it was there to advertise this as the first of its type. I've seen photos of 1:1 planes without the logo.

Hello guys!
Maybe this question/answer has been covered already and if that's the case,i do apologise,but can i just ask. Has Panzerkampf got the Dassault licensing? As this has been a consistent issue with HM as you're all well aware! I'm just amazed to see these as Im a HUGE Dassault fan and have been banging on with HM for ages about getting these released. Looks like Panzerkampf has got the issue resolved?

Panzerkampf Rafale is a bit off scale. I think it is a bit smaller than Dassault Premium X.
