6745 - Supersonic Bomber
This model was inspired by the F111 Aardwark. As I could not replicate the shapes perfectly, I would say this is how a soviet version of the F111 would have looked like – copy what you can and do your best at everything else. :)
About this creation
The F-111's variable geometry wings and afterburning turbofans were new technologies for production aircraft. Here is the plane in it’s high-speed configuration:





I was really impressed by all the functionalities included in Julius D’s models, so I wanted to include some moving parts into my next build even by compromising the look a bit.

The landing gears simply didn’t work out, I did not have any room for the main gears int he body – so I had to leave them out. Instead the wings and the vertical fin are working and the plane has proper flaps on the wings. I’m pretty sure that the connection of the flaps would be considered illegal by LEGO because the parts are stressed – but a little stress can not stop us Comrades copying the imperialist enemies’ new wonderweapon. :)

Anyway here is what she looks like with wings in low-speed configuration, flaps down and the fin ajdusted for a right turn:





Finally here are some images of the side, bottom and front views:







Enjoy!

Josh is right, the F-111 is the older one. After creating this model I've read about the F111 a bit, and I was quite shocked, that it was introduced in the '60s!

Awsome work but the Soviet Air Force had two copies.The SU-24 Fencer and the MiG-23 Flogger.And Scott the F-111 was older and used in Vietnam also its other version the EF-111 Raven was used in Desert Storm

A nice plane you've got here, never herd of the F111, but it looks a bit like a newer version of the GR-1 Tornado. Nice job on the folding wings and moving control surfaces. I might look into buying this set, it looks nice.

Hi Andras, thanks for your support :). 5762 is a nice little set and cheap too. I am not keen on the official models but I love the orange lego. I find photgraphing planes very difficult, you have done a great job with your photos. Can't wait to see your latest.

It always seems that making a small plane look really good is a difficult challenge, but you definitely succeeded here. Especially impressive that you were able to incorporate movable wings too! I remember building a model of the F-111 as a child and it remains one of my favorites!

Yep, the flaps are illegal, but as you say sometimes we have to use that. ;P Anyway, this looks like a great alternate to me. It has a nice shape and some interesting details. The additional functions make it even better!

Great build. The working flaps are a nice touch even if the are under stress. I love the main photo
