The hard part is figuring out how to do it. I may have to invest in some alternative research materials.
That is a good idea! An inner structure is inevitable to secure the pivots of all moving parts.

As there are several Tomcat kits (and other swing-wing planes) available and most of them have connected swing-wings, you could use them for your inspiration.

Here are some Ideas an solutions:

first 3 ideas are from Hobby Model Tu-160 Blackjack (scratch build connection, not included in the kit)
2 gears + 2 push rods (bigger scales)
2 push rods + connecting level (bigger scales)
2 push rods + slider (I used this for tailerons)

2 gear sections integrated into wings (Halinksi Tomcat)
2 gears + 2 push rods (Maly Modelarz Tomcat)
sliding connection (Halinksi Tornado)
2 gear sections integrated into wings (Fly Model Aardvark)
2 gear sections integrated into wings (Fly Model Fencer)

And finally I had in mind an old plastic Tornado which used only 1 push rod connected on one wing in front of the pivot and on the other wing aft of it, idealized like a big Z.

Seeing as this would be just for slow r.p.m. fun and imagination, little pulleys and some high quality rubber bands would work quite well for making inter-meshing blades.. VCR's had belts that lasted for years. I have a briefcase full of them!

Speaking of inter-meshing, Do you or have you made a Kaman Huskie?

I'm still looking for a good 3-view on the Huskie. I had a plastic model a long time ago, but it disappeared. If I can find another one, or somebody has one they don't mind scanning the instructions, I'll restart it.

My goal is to keep things as simple as possible. That's the underground challenge of Oddball Productions; complication simplified. To use as few parts to pull off a good looking model.

I looked at the FG version of the F-14, but it's too simple. The wings aren't even linked.

Looks promising. I guess you pin the holes for pivots, then put a central pin that slides for the slots. I might be able to make that work.
