Managed to lay my paws on the Revell F-111 Tactical Fighter (TFX) kit optional noses and wings from ebay :thumbsup: For an F-111K, is that long nose & short wings or vice versa?

F-111K had a long nose and short wings despite what the majority of people say.

Gondor

Cheers Gondor :thumbsup: Now what to do with the short nose and long wings :unsure:

An F-111B of course  :thumbsup:

The F-111K was the A fitted with FB-111 wheels for tougher landings as was intended to work East of Suez from the Island mounting bases, some UK avionics and the most visual clue being the retractable refuelling probe ahead of the windscreen. The K also had the option to fit tanks in the bombbay and an internal brace for an external belly pylon. Not sure where the long winged K urban myth sprung from apart from maybe  the RAAF selecting the C ot that parts from on of the K's in build were used in a FB-111A as the media from the day clearly state a modified A

Only two K's were started before the order was cancelled, these were moved from the assembly line to a holding area until a decision was made.  After cancellation the two were ""reduced to spares"" and used in the FB-111A production.  There's a couple of photos of them together in the holding area which I have seen. Neither were complete, one had wings attached while the other didn't.  There was one FB-111A painted up in RAF camo scheme for demonstration purposes, this has sometime been mistaken as a completed FB-111K

Xtradecal He111P sheet for when the Airfix kit comes out. Got it because they have an early war scheme with the 3 upper colours rather then the standard 2 greens. I'm building her real world, when I get her, but it will look a little different in this scheme.

Sheets got some nice personal markings which will be useful for other projects

Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

Last week's deliveries, as usual, all 1/72 kits and bits....
Starting with a Heller Saab J-35 bought through ebay from someone whom i believe to be the fellow forum user and whif modeler 63cpe. I did find the nickname was familiar on the bay... :thumbsup:
From Canada, 2 sets of resin JHMCS by Modern Hobbies directly from their site, excellent detail on these helmets.
From Portuguese shop, Bigcat modelismo: Academy A-10 Iraqui Freedom, Revell F-16MLU "solo display", airfield, runway and deck section display bases and also, another Hobbyboss F-5E TigerII.
From Yourmate UK and US in South Korea, Tamiya Mirage 2000C and the Italeri F-5E TigerII.
To close the week, received one of my all time favorites... The beautiful Tamiya F4D Skyray!  :drink: Straight from the UK from Models4hobby shop.
With these, i managed to fill the rest of my stash storage space... I already have a few boxes crowding the work bench... and there are 7 more kits on their way... it means, stop buying and start building!! ;D

from the usual goodness that is the IPMS Avon show at thornbury yesterday :)

1/72 Maintrack F-107 vacform [so I can do a two seater F-107 using the trumpeter IM kit of same]
1/72 airfix F-86D
1/72 airfix Fairey Firefly [so I can use all of the Firefly aftermarket stuff I have; needing three to do this triplet of models this one was the 3rd]

some old Gloy and Humbrol authentics paints [at 50p per pot and several shades I hadn't got RAF NIVO and US pre-war grey being two]

modeldecal sheet #11 [gonna use the RCAF Sabre markings it has on the above F-86D kit  ;D ]

I was however pipped at the post by here's very own Andrew J over a Maintrack P1121 vacform!  ;) i'm just left wondering what he a 1/48 wiffer will be doing
with 1/72 vacform.  :wacko:

as usual the Avon crowd put on a good show.  :thumbsup:

Well as it is Andrew I would suspect to use as a reference for doing a 1/48th version, although if doing one he should await on Overscan's P1121 book du out in November by Blue Envoy press  :thumbsup:
