Model white 65 built by Dragan Cvetic

1/144  Dassault MD.450 OURAGAN - Miniwing

The Dassault M.D.450 Ouragan (French: Hurricane) was a French fighter-bomber developed and produced by Dassault Aviation. It has its origins in a private venture by Dassault to produce an all-French aircraft which would made use of jet propulsion, which subsequently would receive orders from the French Air Force.

The Ouragan holds the distinction of being the first jet-powered French-designed combat aircraft to enter production, and thus played a key role in the resurgence of the French aviation industry following the Second World War. The Ouragan was operated by France, India, Israel and El Salvador. While in Israeli service, the type participated in both the Suez Crisis and the Six-Day War.

This Miniwing kit was previously issued in 2015 in resin, now in 2021 it is release as a plastic injection kit and therefore should appeal to a wider range of modellers!
