F-104G Starfighter, Eggbeck A.B. 1973
This is new tooled Italeri kit (scale 1:32) and it is very straightforward build with very few issues. I had troubles to glue rear part of the fuselage because when using kit the engine support I was 3 ° off axis (to right side). I decided to glue it only at the front and then at back. It is fully OK and makes no troubles then.
The build is OOB and I really enjoyed it from the start to the end. RBF stripes are very nice and they made this kit real live airplane.
I also used almost only MR. Paint colors for the first time for this project and I recommend them to everybody. They are durable, extremly fast drying and have real shades.
Photoshoot was the challenge, I have no lights at this place nor photobox big enough for such large plane, so please excuse pictures quality.
