F-104G Belgian Starfighter “all open”
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) : train wells, cockpit, avionics, electrical load center bay, M61 Vulcan rotary-fire cannon, engine bay with hydraulic service panel, drag chute,… (Daco, CMK).
So here is an “all open” version of this Belgian Starfitghter. This has resulted in a long and sometimes complicated work of planing and adjusting, due to the conflicts between the additional parts.
I hope you enjoy it.
FX-52 has a commonplace story, which you can discover on “wreckhunters” (http://www.wreckhunters.be/niederrhein-fx52.html) and on “Tigers squadron” (http://www.31tigersqn.be/pictures/special-paints/1978-fx-52/) websites.
After retirement, it was sold to finish « tigered » painted as seen on the last photo.
