  1. Wow, congratulations! A very good looking Starfighter. Lovely finish.

  2. Tolga, yet another masterpiece.
    Love it.

  3. very impressive. Nice work with the Alclad.

  4. Looks Great!

  5. The neat thing about the engineering of Hasegawa F-104 kits is that they make a mediocre modeler look good, a good modeler look great and a great modeler gets elevated into the master modeler category. Looks to be a MMC model.

  6. Nice clean build. Great job on the panels and rivets, done just right.

  7. Beautiful build, Tolga...nice work!

  8. Oh well, another boringly-perfect Tolga Ulgur model. 🙂

  9. Lovely work,as ever Tolga.

  10. Fantastic Build Tolga
    Beautifully Painted and very subtly weathered

  11. Beautiful model of a beautiful airplane.

  12. Tolga,
    You never cease to amaze. This is absolutely beautiful.

  13. I remember building an Airfix 1/72 kit of the Starfighter many, many years ago, I'm sure it didn't look anywhere as good as this, full marks, Tolga!

  14. Thanks for your comments.

    very fine work as all ways

  16. Tolga, fantastic job on an aircraft that is always going to look fantastic, beautiful, and brand new no matter what year it is! Kelly Johnson knew how to design them. And your photos are outstanding, were they taken in full sunlight? Thanks so much for posting!
