Whiffs in publications...

...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...

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.
Cheers,
Moritz

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