1:72 Scale Metal Diecast - Dassault Rafale French Multi-role Aircraft - Length: 7.75" Wingspan: 6”
A metal display stand is included.
The canopy can be positioned in the opened or closed. One has to be very careful as to not damage/break the canopy. The landing gear is optional, one can attach the landing gear or cover the wheel wells.
Some assembly is required to place the landing gear and/or wheel well covers in place, as well as the weapons on the wings and fuselage. This is quite simple, but one needs to be very careful and patient.
The cockpit canopy can open and close, however, one also needs to be very careful when moving the canopy as it is very fragile.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.

Equipped with a wide range of weapons, the Rafale is intended to perform air supremacy, interdiction, aerial reconnaissance, ground support, in-depth strike, anti-ship strike and nuclear deterrence missions. The Rafale is referred to as an "omnirole" aircraft by Dassault.
