F-111 20 mm gun cover

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am looking for a drawing or diagram of the F-111 gun cover.

 

The scope is to scratch built it in 1/72

 

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Modeller's Data File 19 - General Dynamics F-111 published by SAM Publications has a set of 1/72 & 1/48 plans which include the gun.

 

Basically imagine a thin half droptank on the centreline and contained within the central panel line markings for roughly the forward half of the weapons bay doors rounded at the rear and slightly sharper to the front for the gun muzzle.

 

Pretty certain that the part was included with the Esci F-111A and with some at least of the Hasegawa kits.

 

AMENDED

 

In view of the excellent information in the next post best to disregard any information based on the MDF19 plans as the locations and shape of the actual gun fairing published is wrong however a quick search since has confirmed my thought that the kits mentioned did contain 'the' (or at least 'a') fairing.

Joseph,

 

Does this help? Jim Rotramel is one of THE F-111 modeling authorities.

 The gun cover was  included in the esci,amt,italeri kit on the same sprue as the tail, the ecm pods and the M-117 bombs.

 

i hope that italeri will reissue this kit one day.

But... you're looking for a gun cover? Or are you intent on scratchbuilding one yourself?

 

Cheers,
