Nice one Mr (or is it Dr?) Pepper! Will be following this one closely. I have the Academy 1:48 F-111 in my stash.
I know it's a bit of a red-haired step-sister, but I love the plane. [smile]

Hi Simon and Pete. Yes it's a beautiful plane ! The all grey tones -Australian F111 is much more inspirational to me than the usual USAF camo.
The great thing with the Academy F111 kit is the synchronized pylons.

Oh really??? I didn't know! Awesome!
I did wonder how that all worked. lol
Dunno when I'm going to build it, it'll be RAAF of course.
So I'll watch here in the meantime. [smile]

There you go Pep! A bit of Aussie inspiration. Don't know who put this together, but English was obviously their second language. lol

Great article mate, I found part 2 as well.
As an Aussie growing up with the F-111 (Yep I had the posters and all), I can tell you it's a big part of our defense pride. We are largely insulated from the bad press the plane got from the US, and judging by the statements of actual crew of this craft in the US, the bad press wasn't always justified.
The RAAF continued to develop the plane, including major avionics upgrades to keep it up-to-date, until it's retirement in 2010. An event I missed due to personal distractions at the time. But one thing I won't forget is my close encounter with the "Pig" in 1984 when I was on exercise (Pitch Black) in Darwin. Standing on the edge of the runway, at night, with this beast only a few dozen metres in front of me, as it fired up for takeoff, is an experience I will take to my grave.
Maybe I'll do a dio of it one day? [smile]
Thanks for the link, probably the best article I've read on the F-111 yet.

Hello,

Latest update.
So far and before starting the WW2-BOMBER GENESSIS-MODELS GB :

Having a LOT of pleasure with this kit. The wings are beautiful, landing gear are nicely detailed and crying for some hydraulic "wiring".
Engines are glued in place without particular attention, they're not going to be seen even from the rear.
Worked mainly on re-riveting and scribing the nose/front section, but still a lot to do.
The sub-assemblies cockpit/seats/landing gear/pylons/fuel containers and bits & pieces are ready for paint.



















Back to the "stand-by" shelf, with all the nice things waiting for great attention.






Thanks for watching, i hope you enjoyed what is for the moment a classic modelling step.
Hope to post more soon. [wink]

Mate, mate!! I was there! Haha! Pitch Black '84!
I've never seen pics of it so thanks for that!! [biggrin]

This build is coming along nicely, I'd like to know how you got your rivets so neat and uniform in the circles? That's a really tricky thing to do and you nailed it.

Really looking forward to your progress and it's making me itch to start my Academy. [smile] (I have way too many things going already, so it will wait.)

Haha ! [wink]

I knew you would like Simon ! And you are welcome mate [wink] . Check the FaceB. group "Save the F-111" ; awesome pics sometimes from private archives.

Thanks for the kind words ! The rivets in the round hatch or access panel (i suppose) were already moulded. I just "improved" the details. Hopefully i'll manage to paint the cockpit soon...

VERY nice Laurent!! how is this kits fit? HobbyBoss sometimes is a hit and miss, for me anyway, would like to actually get this kit. I did my Tech training when I was in the Air Force at Chanute AFB in Chicago Illinois and had my picture taken next to a F-111. Here is the pic now keep in mind this pic is very old 1980 and it was about -10 F so the guy taking the pic was kind of shaking and blurred the picture but you get the idea lol
