I don't know if these have been posted elsewhere but they are the only colour concept art pictures of the f-111K to my knowledge. Please correct me if I am wrong.
One is from one of the information boards in the Cold War Hall at Cosford - I presume it was made during the acquisition process of the f-111; the other is in British Secret Projects 2 and I assume it is from the original Brochure.
Ask @TsrJoe, he's been researching this topic for a while.

Before or during the Enhanced Tactical Fighter program was there ever consideration in unifying the F-111 fleet into a single version? Or was it by 1980 that throwing serious money into the Aardvark was political poison?

OK pundits.... what version is THIS one????? Did a little paint touch up and reproduced the wheels on one side that had gone astray. Sadly the wings are fixed, but neet as all get out none the less. A tad smaller than the usual in-house GD models. Camo IS original and matches the AMSA model that came with this gem. Pardon all of the clutter... we just moved but I just had to share.

Due to the main landing gear, I also presume, it is a model of the FB-111H.
