Default F-12E

What If NAA F-12E. Picking through a lot of Sixties aviation lore, and this one is based on a North American Aviation design that could have been in the running as an interceptor counterpart to the F-111 - and was likely the basis for the Sukhoi T-10/SU-27. Reputedly, the panicked reaction to the Foxbat killed the NAA design, and the next attempt was the F-15 (the NAA entry was a downsized version of the earlier design).

Started with a 1/48 SU-37, reworked the wingsweep with sheet plastic, and bulked up the undersides of the engine-boxes with more plastic and Bondo glaze. Tailfins and strakes were scratchbuilt. The cockpit/canopy was from Monogram F-18A kit; the resin nose was modified from my B-58C conv. set. The conformal fuel tank between the engines, and underside launch-rails, were also scratched. I was going to finish this up as an "A" version with AIM-47s but decided to go with an updated version with Phoenix missiles instead; the Sparrows, Sidewinders, and pylons were modified Monogram F-15 parts. Decals from the spares-box. Tried for an experimental grey-black multi-tonal camoflage, spray-bombed through blue-tape masks. Detailed with acrylics, pens, pastels, and pencils.

Finished the model, shot some "nose" art photos (look beneath the intakes), and moved it all here.
