    It's probably the lighting. I just put a panel line wash over it. Other than that, it's as it comes out of the jar.

    The lighter one was Tamiya Dark Sea Grey (XF-54?)

    Sorry, so busy at work, I'm confusing my builds. The Spey is still the same diameter as the J-75, but iirc , longer. The F-4J used the J-79 which is about 5 inches smaller in diameter

    The Spey is actually smaller in diameter and shorter than the TF-30 fitted to the F-111F

    F-105K

    Entering service in 1963 to fill GOR.339. Named the Thunder GR.1, the F-105K was the first two seat version of the F-105. The only changes from the US version were a conformal bomb bay to hold the Red Beard target marker, and the deletion of the 20mm gun, it being replaced by a strike camera. By the early 70's an updated version was put forward, which would see it re-engined and new avionics and cockpit displays. A Ferranti TFR, and side looking radar was fitted, along with an LRMTS under the nose. The nuclear role, having gone to the Navy, was removed, and conventional weapons catered for. 213 Sqn flew the Thunder GR.3 from RAF Gutersloh, mostly in the recon role, with the EMI pod, up until 1984, when the Thunder was replaced by the Hornet GR.1 Kit is the 1/48 Hobbyboss F-105G GR.1 (Monogram kit) and GR.3 20200510_145546 by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20200510_150703 by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20200510_150709 by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20200510_150722 by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20200510_150726 by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20200510_150808 by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20200510_150740 by Paul Carter, on Flickr

    Thankyou. Hobbyboss give the yellow surrounds as decals. They're a bit fiddly to get into place intact and straight, but worth the effort.

Oh, I don't know....maybe it would, lol 20170413_171856_zpsqzlbj4yi by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20170413_171917_zpsugkmr27t by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20170413_172009_zps2ngh3h7m by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20170413_172056_zpswlwr8l8p by Paul Carter, on Flickr 20170413_171945_zpsyoprffzz by Paul Carter, on Flickr

    I'm out of F-111's at the moment, lol. Next project, another F-105K, to go with the one I already have.

    I thought I'd posted this here, to go with my F-111M. Apparently not, so here goes...

    F-111M

    I've thought about building one "sans capsule". Maybe a lightweight F-111? The capsule is ideal for a naval aircraft though, so I left it. The RAF one I think is posted here too.....

    F-111M

    As this is purely a strike aircraft, no dogfighting capability is required. The engines fitted by then would have been powerful enough for this role.

    F-111M

    Looking for a replacement for the Buccaneer, the Royal Navy were impressed by the RAF's F-111K Merlin GR.1s that had come into service in 1970. They approached GD to see if they could produce a carrier capable version. Naturally, having developed (but cancelled) the F-111B, the capability was there. The F-111K was given the longer wings and arrestor hook from the F-111B. Other changes were made, including a folding nose, catapult strop hooks, and equipment differences.
