General Dynamics FB-111 Aardvark V00 3D model
This bomber is built very near to scale, within a few inches of actual general dimensions. It is a complete update and rebuild from our original model series built in 2006. Updating was prompted by the request of an aviation museum in Australia, displaying an F-111G. They were thrilled with this model and others also supplied by Dreamscape. Much more detail, more accuracy and better flight controls are provided in this 90% rebuilt model. This model is fully textured and has many animateable features including stabilators, flaps, rudder, landing gear retraction and landing gear doors. Canopy can be opened and the cockpit has more detail than the original by far. This model is available in a wide variety of formats.
The FB-111A/F-111G was developed from the F-111 to use in a tactical bomber and attack role for close air support.
The FB-111 was developed with the capability of carrying a wide range of weapons including cruise missiles, JDAM, Missiles, many types of dumb bombs and external fuel.
It was employed by the Tactical Air Command in Vietnam and were also used in the attack on Libya in the early 1980s and in the 1st Persian Gulf War by the US Air Force. These aircraft were retired in 1995 from the USAF but continued with the RAAF until 2005.
