1:72 ESCI F-111A

Recommended Posts

Hello guys.Here is my latest finished model.Just an hour ago.The kit is the old but gold ESCI F-111A.I built it with the kit decals and they ware completley ok and great considering their age.It showed 1991 on the decal sheet.The cockpit was completley reworked with a lot of details.Also the pittotube is made using a needle.The paints used are gunze.

 

Enjoy the photos

I only recognised it is the ESCI kit by looking at the engines' exhausts.

 

Perfect build!!!

Nice stuff. I have to try cutting the Hasy canopies on mine. You made it look great!

Very nice job! I've built a few of those and they're not the easiest or best detailed kits...

Wow! Nice F-111A....I've always liked the 111. Had my dads F-111 contractor model from his tour at Edwards. I gave it to "Bondo" Phil before he passed away. Thinking about getting the HB F-111A and build it as a gray/whited painted test bird from Edwards. Very detailed for 1/72! Ha...no way my 60 year old eyes could do that now!!!

This is great; even better that the overall shape looks like an Aardvark! I love seeing what people can do with old hidden gems.
