...or even on the front page:

This is more then just a retro paint scheme too.  There are quite a few airframe and even cockpit modifications to back date the Rafale to. '50s era jet.

That is great.
And reminds me of my own retro jets I did some time ago.

I even did a retro Rafale (althought mine was more a 1960's one)

There is actually a full build article in the magazine...which may still be available in some newsagents or from the Publishers themselves...

I even did a retro Rafale (althought mine was more a 1960's one)

The one in the Magazine also has shock cones in the inlets as well as a rocket booster back under the belly.

This may just one of the best Whifs EVER!  :-* There was a fairly comprehensive in-progress article on some French board, but I think the thread is no longer available. Pity, really, as it showcased just how much thought Phillippe put into back-dating the Rafale.

It should be a very interesting article.
It is good to see that someone else is also having this kind of ideas.
