Built by General Dynamics in 1970, F-111 Aardvark 70-2413 spent most of its time assigned to the 492nd FS “Bolars” at RAF Lakenheath in England. The 494th was re-activated in July 1952 and has been stationed at RAF Lakenheath since 1950. Over the years the squadron has been equipped with F-84s, F-86s, F-100s, F-4s, F-111s and presently F-15 Eagles. Since reforming in 1952 the squadron has participated in Operation El Dorado Canyon (raid on Libya), Operation Desert Storm, Operation Allied Force, Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Provide Comfort and Operation Northern Watch.

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.
