that the RAAF F-111C colours were probably the same colours that
the TAC F-111A/D/E/F were painted during the 1970s and 1980s. The
SAC FB-111A began with a green camouflage with white underside,
but towards the end were painted a three colour dark green / grey
pattern. This led to the name 'Dark Vark'. Towards the late 1980s
the USAF F-111 (excluding the EF-111A) were painted all-over Grey
(see colour below). Some model kits for the F-111C show the underside
as white or light grey. This was changed to black before delivery
to Amberley in 1973. Note that all RAAF F-111s are now painted grey.

the local model shop to RAAF Base Amberley, and having numerous
