Product Description

The "swing wing" F-111 "Aardvark" fighter-bomber, built by General Dynamics, entered the USAF inventory in 1967. The F-111's wings are straight for take-offs and landings, or slow speed flight; by sweeping its wings rearward it can exceed twice the speed of sound (Mach 2). In all, 562 F-111's of all series were built; 96 of them were production F-111D's, 94 were production F-111E's, and 106 were production F-111F's.

The F-111 was a long-range, all-weather strike aircraft capable of navigating at low level to reach targets deep in enemy territory and to deliver ordnance on the target. Primarily a bomber, the F-111 featured a sweep wing varying between 16 degrees and 72.5 degrees, with side-by-side seating for a pilot and weapons systems officer.

About these Handcrafted Airplane Models:
This beautiful handmade airplane model is an authentic replica made from the finest grade of select kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. The airplane model is made entirely by hand: From the handcarving of the aircraft fuselage, wings and tail section, to the sanding of the aircraft's contours. Every part is assembled precisely into place. After shaping and sanding, the airplane model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors, emblems and insignias of the original historical aircraft. Finally, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.
