Hi ,I found this photo of the alternative layout for the F-111B and thought that I could have a go at building it using the Revell 1/72 Tornado GR1 and the Revell 1/72 F-111 TFX kits. Which should look something like this when it's finished.

Will die without understanding this world.

I can't use the rest of the F-111 cockpit as it fits so well in the 1/72 YF-23B.

This looks awesome! Can't wait to see it come together!
I had one of those Revell F-111 kits with the parts for an A or B model. I've still got the B nose rolling around in the spares boxes.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Thanks Guys for your comments, I'm using scrap pieces of plastic to fill the gaps around the new cockpit. These will be sanded and shaped accordingly. The alignment is slightly out but I don't think that it's noticeable.
The F-111 undercarriage pieces are missing so I am using the parts from the Tonka donor kit. I think this build would look better in 1/48 scale.
