Revell 1/48 F-104G
The second of the ten dollar specials, this was originally intended to be the basis of a serious NMF effort-until I found it was smooth as a baby’s behind as well. I really was hoping for engraved panel lines-this is a smooth tube, which, in what’s left of my mind, doesn’t help.
I used Model Master buffing metalizers, then sealed it with their proprietary mix, which dulled it more than I expected. Satin sealer went over the markings, then off to the display case it went. A day later I found some Microscale foil adhesive on the web. And started looking for a modern kit.
