I have never heard of ANY plan being published for that aircraft, but Christian Diffusion out of Switzerland is making a huge and expensive all composite kit for it soon.
There was a guy out of australia who made up some models out of wood, but I don't think the plan was published.

F-111

Another favorite jet thats on my must have one day list-
There are a few F-111 options Iam aware of. The Jet-Tech kit by Franz Walti (who designed the big BVM Rafale) go here and click on jet models- http://www.jettech.ch/e-eingang.html
And the Aussie F-111 project for turbines that a kit is currently being developed from....

Plus a set of F-111 plans available from Aussie R/C model magazine 'Airborne' their website is currently down temporarily though so I cannot give you the link at present. I will see what I can find out and post a link here soon for you.

Cheers-

Really? Aussie plans? I take it the plans are the one that was featured in RCJI? He made one out of balsa, and he made one out of glass, the molds still exist somewhere...but I never heard of plans...I want a set.

ET- I dont think its the same one, I recall the RCJI issue you mentioned from a few years ago correct? it had the F-111 on the cover? the Airborne plans are of a much smaller version from memory, Its been a while since I saw this and dont recall specs, I cannot get onto their website at the moment?? seems like a server problem their end. I will check later and see if I can get a link to the F-111 plans for you.

Yes, it was the one on the cover. Really super job that guy did...he has passed away since. Scratched out scale landing gear, the whole shebang. AFAIK he did NOT publish plans...
He did one with twin DF with his own 6" tractor fans(if I remember correctly) and one with turbine.
First I am hearing of this one. How big is it, do you remember?

Not sure about size?, I do not recall, thats why I was trying to get onto their website... still no luck, maybe either .60 prop or 90 D/F from memory...

A cool website on F-111 models that shows the one from RCJI and more- http://www.f-111.net/models/f-111-large-models.htm

Plans

Heres the link to the Airborne Magazine and the F-111 plans....
http://www.airbornemagazine.com.au/index.html click on articles page and scroll down for the F111 plans. The 'Airborne' F111 plans are actually for a .46 prop version, I guess you could possibly convert this also to EDF etc. Theres quite a few interesting jet plans from Airborne, mostly semi-scle prop and PSS jets but many could be D/F converted I reckon.... Theres plans also for a sweet looking little DH Vampire an Me-163, Tornado, Strikemaster and F-18.
I have a set of 'Airborne' plans for their 1/5 scale CA-15 so I can vouch for the quality and high detail shown on their plans, and good customer service even O/S shipping is no problem.

Great link...one mag I don't get...I'm going to subscribe.
But the 111 propjet is not really much of a 111...the wings don't even swing! As far as converting glow prop jets to DF...probably better off starting with just a clean sheet of paper.

Hi.
I was intrested how you got on re F111 plans.
I have downloaded all the info from the links posted and have contacted a couple of other places re technical drawings of the F111.
I am looking to build an F111 using twin jets so all the info I can get will be a great help, but it looks like I will have a lot of work to do with autocad.
