Lockheed F-104 Starfighter
Another one from the recent past. Hasegawa’s F-104G with as much aftermarket stuff as I could cram into it. This was an important lesson in ‘critical mass’; the idea that at some point Gewgaw A and What’s-it B will eventual […]
Eduard (Hasegawa) 1/48. Here (finally!) the F-104G Natofighter Eduard 1/48 that I was happy to receive here (as “awards of the month” winner) 19 months ago (October 2015). I used almost all the available detailing sets (except the radome) : […]

Hi Chaps, This is the Italeri 1/72 F104G not the best 1/72 scale 104 out there but still a nice little kit no vices a bit basic is the only fault but it builds easily enough the panel lines are […]
