This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The FB-111A can carry up to fifty 750 pound bombs by using both its internal bomb bay and six under-wing hardpoints with multiple ejector racks. As the wing of the FB-111A moves aft, part of the trailing edge slides into a trough in the fuselage, an action which prohibits the use of conventional ailerons. Instead of ailerons on the wing, the horizontal stabilizers operate as both aileron and elevator, acting differentially in whatever mode is required.
The FB-111A is powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney TF-30-P-7 turbofan engines each with 20,350 pounds of thrust, using afterburners. This package gives the bomber a maximum range, in ferry configuration is in excess of 3,400 miles but in-flight refueling gives the FB-111A a much greater combat range.
Overall length is 73'6''. The swept span of the variable-geometry wing is 33'11''. Empty weight is 50,000 pounds while gross weight is in excess of 119,000 pounds. The FB-111A has no internally mounted defensive armament, but the hardpoints are capable of mounting several types of offensive or defensive weapons.
- Fully engraved panel lines.
- Highly detailed cockpit interior and landing gear compartment.
- Optional position wings and landing gear.
- Full complement under-wing stores included.
