    F-111F USAF Painting in 1986: TIFU

    No, it was just some BS. There was no real story there.

    F-111F USAF Painting in 1986: TIFU

    Thanks Paul! That's actually the first picture I've seen that more or less followed the guide I had been working from. It was that same tan on the nose that first caught my eye and highlighted my mistake. I found a set of instructions for the Academy E version online (I'm at work so can't consult the F instructions at home) and the instructions seem to correspond to the later pictures I have, and (fortunately) the parts I have already painted are not far off. It's that tan patch on the nose and the tail surface that seem to differ most of all, where the top of the fuselage and wings are not overly different from the AF Tech order. So this big problem is not so big after all.

    Ok, that's not much of an answer. There must have been some at least semi-standard since different aircraft have very similar camo applications. They surely weren't just making it up.

    F-111F USAF Painting in 1986: TIFU

    Hello all, I'm about half way into painting the camo on a 1:48 Academy F-111F and I've been working from USAF Tech Order 1-1-4 (Exterior Finishes, Insignia and Markings), and all was well in this modeler's world. Then I started looking at my reference photos for something unrelated and I realized that the camo of every US F-111F in every picture I've got is different from this tech order! Aside from my being a dummy for not noticing sooner, can anyone explain why there is such a discrepancy? Are there older three-view diagrams that show the correct application of colors to F-111Fs in the mid-80's? Thanks!

    Hey Jim, I PM'ed you another question about the F-111 side of the strikes in Libya. I didn't want to hijack this thread. Hope you don't mind!
  13. Little bump to say that I was happy enough the first time to go back again! Two great trades here. Will there be a third? (My wallet cries in the corner.)

    J-Fever: Great Seller!

    I was so well treated the first time that I went back for seconds! Second trade was as flawless as the first. Thanks again!!
