Default 1/48 Academy RAAF F-111C

Here is a little something I am working on to take the mind off recent developments.

Basically OOB, this is the Academy kit that seems to be a nice mold. But the decals are missing haf the stuff needed, so I am having to mask and paint the black run lines and the like to make it look half decent..

I used to work on the F-111 another life ago, so I know just how beat up they get. So this guy will probably need to be retired with the real ones next year also..

Looking good, Chris. I, too, worked on the -111, and, in fact, trained some of the first Aussie crews way back in the early '70's at Nellis. I worked INS/TFR with the 428TFS/474TFW (we later picked up Attack Radar, so basically, I had almost the entire front end of the aircraft). Opened a lot of radomes!!!

Hi Pavel.. yes, I forgot how big this kit was..

I actually built one about 15 years ago. But did it in the camo scheme that the RAAF used to use..
