1/48 Monogram F-111I

This is the very old Monogram F-111 kit based off of the Aurora molds.  It looks pretty rough, lacks detail and is very inaccurate, so I decided to build it as an Israeli What If model.

The kit was completely rescribed and I used spares from other kits to dress it up.  Pilot figures are spares from various Monogram kits, fuel tanks are from the Monogram A-10, and the missiles were from the Hasegawa weapons set.  Decals are from the spares box, and the tail was masked and painted to represent the Hammer Squadron.

Enjoy the photos.
