It would be tricky finding the serials for RAF F111s with that website if you didn't know where to start.
Which I wouldn't.


Doesn't take long, even if you're not sure of the letter series.  Use the 'find' function on your browser, type in F-111, then go through each of the pages in the right kind of range.  I've done this before for other aircraft and found them quite quickly, very useful.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Which you'd have to know in the first place.  I guess you guys have soaked up all this knowledge and/or built up your libraries.

It's good that you want to go to those lengths to impart realism to your Whiffs.  I think i'll just continue making stuff up.

For some reason it looks so very "British" in that scheme

Beauty. Love the metal finish. Kinda toned down like dope but also looks like weathered steel. I like it ! Looks awesome in RAF markings.

Very nice build.  The silver finish is unusual for the period and stands out, great stuff. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
