1:72 Scale.  Length: 12.25".  Wingspan (spread): 10.5”

Built by General Dynamics in 1974 as c/n E2-96, F-111F Aardvark #74-0178 spent a great deal of time assigned to the 494th FS “Panthers” stationed at RAF Lakenheath, England. The 494th was re-activated in July 1952 as the 494th FBS and re-designated 494th FS in 1991. They have been at RAF Lakenheath since 1960. The squadron has been equipped with numerous types of aircraft over the years including the F-111F from 1977 until 1992 and presently the F-15E Strike Eagle. Since reforming in 1952 they have participated in Operation El Dorado Canyon (the raid on Libya), Operation Desert Storm, Operation Allied Force, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark entered service with the US Air Force in July 1967 as a medium-range aircraft designed for interdiction and tactical strike. The F-111 was also used as a strategic bomber, reconnaissance and an electronic warfare aircraft. Some unique features of the F-111 when it was introduced included variable-geometry wings, crew seating in an escape capsule cockpit, terrain following radar and afterburning turbofan engines.

Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
