  1. Hi all, Here's my 1/72 Hasegawa F-111D that I just finished. I used some Eduard PE on it, mainly in the cockpit, and used a mix of Superscale and kit decals. Painted with Gunze and Tamiya. I wanted to add a pair of Eduard AIM-9's, but those PE fins are really testing my patience and skills, so they might be added later. And the cockpit during construction: Thanks for looking.
  2. Right. So I'm back from travels and armed with my US-Airfix "F-111F" kit. I am currently slammed for time and know little about F-111s, so this will be more or less OOB. I won't be correcting any shape errors, but I will be adding some detail because my home audience (my daughter) likes stuff like seat belts! I will therefore spend some time on making it look less toy like: * cockpit detail, possibly opened canopy * deeper and detailed wheel wells * better wheels * engine details Extra detail will come from the spares box and scrap plastic. I also ha
  3. I've recently acquired a bargain Airfix F-111E kit and was wondering if anyone could answer either of the following? If I make the E version OOB, are there any decals with the UH tail code and serial in black? (those in the kit are white). or What would I need to change externally on this kit to make it look like a Lakenheath F-111F? ie what's the difference between an E and an F, visually?
  4. When: 1st April 2017 to 2nd July 2017 Host: trickyrich Ok there seems to be a wee bit of interest shown in this on the F-16 STGB where I mentioned it, so here it is. It's an aircraft thats quite forgotten but actually had quite a long life, over 40 years active service, even thought it's gestation was a bit pain full and during this time she acquired a a bit of a bad reputation. She wasn't the sales success that was hoped for it with the RAAF being the only other operator. The RAF nearly had them but as usual politics kill this along with a lot of other projects, home grown
  5. Well through the magic of the internet and some preplanning I can start this thread away form home……….and then wait 8 weeks before I can actually start. As a former “Pig Fixer” you’d have thought I’d have built one by now but I haven’t, so as to have no excuse not to I preposed this GB. I’ll be building Hobby Boss’s 1/48th F-111C into hopefully time permitting, into a RF-111C I worked on operated by 6 Sqn at RAAF Base Amberley in the late 80’s. The Hobby Boss model is a nice model with heaps of detail and masses of weapons are provided even thoug
  6. I decided to start another kit to represent F-111E 68-0020 in 1986 with the "My Luck Blonde" nose art. The kit is the same Hasegawa F-111E Nose Art The aircraft being modeled. The cockpit was painted a lighter gray this time Instrument panel decals are not bad all things considered. Cockpit installed and fuselage mating started. Note that I had to use an older canopy from the spares box while the one from the kit box was "baptized" in a bath of fl
  7. Hello chaps Nice to be around this one, the wait is over... I am pretty sure this is going to be a pleasant and entertaining group build, as it is usual here on BM... I'm in with a colorful F-111E carrying a nice noseart. Not sure about its role in Libya, all I know it was the commander of the sqd. flagship and that the noseart brought luck to the pliot back from the days of Vietnam. Hopefully someone can add some info o the subject, I'd be very happy to hear. Initially I was thinking of a downed F-111F 70-2389 callsigned Karma 52, but since I do
  8. Better late than never!
  9. Hi all, Just picked up an Academy 1/48 F-111C (the newer release with updated moldings etc) for a bargain price and was wondering if it is possible to build an F-111E or F from the kit. I don't know enough about the aircraft myself but I'm sure there are some of you knowledgeable types out there who will know whether it can be done or not. Thanks for looking. Craig.
  10. Here is my interpretation of F-111E serial 67-0120, 20th Fighter Wing USAF, Incirlik AB (Turkey), January 1991, Operation "Desert Storm". 1/48 Italeri kit (rebox of Academy); Eduard`s ZOOM PE set (for HobbyBoss kit) in cockpit; Master`s pitot tube; ALQ-131 ECM from Kinetic`s F-16 kit under fuselage. Lot of scratch work (esp. slats and flaps, canopy, changed gear bay cover etc.). Camo is painted with Lifecolors. Decals are from the box, but I`ve changed some things, because I wanted my "120" in "Desert Storm" scheme, without all those colorful additions that this aircraft usually ha

  12. General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark and EF-111A Raven Warpaint Series No.104 Controversy and competency is the best way to describe the first variable geometry combat aircraft to enter operational service anywhere in the world. This was the F-111 Aardvark, the typical Cold War below the radar strike bomber. It was born in one of the most politically-motivated and incompetent procurement processes ever, and experienced a troublesome gestation period with spiralling costs in development and production, and an unimpressive first deployment to Vietnam in 1967. Yet, all

    On the cancellation of the TSR2, the government placed an order for 50 F-111K bombers. Had we actually got them, here's what I think they would have looked like by the 80's. 7 Sqn was one of the units earmarked to receive them. XV 912 was within the range of serials set aside for the F-111K. Kit is the Academy one. It did fight me a bit, but went together ok.
  14. Hi all, After 10 months and a few hours on Sunday afternoon it's finally done. This has been built for a friend as a thankyou for some bits and pieces that he helped me out with in 2012. Gary H...I hope you like it mate! The aircraft represents A8-127 from 1 Squadron circa the mid 70's well before the Pavetack and AUP programs were implemented. The gun fairing is installed. Of note is that during this period the squadrons had not yet applies squadron specific markings hence why the tail is vacant of advertising. Sadly, this aircraft along with her crew was lost on the 13th of September 1993
  15. Hi guys, This is what I was up to with my RAAF F-111 build. New IP as the kit is a decal only. Intake trunking Cut the pilots canopy open to show off the work inside. New throttles...actually the kit doesn't have any to replace. All dressed up and ready for the canopy.
