1/32 Scale Italeri F-104 ASA-M Italian Air Force with real aluminum skin
Hi friends, here is the completed F-104 ASA with real aluminum skin. I am so glad to be done with F-104s for awhile! This kit is my second 1/32 Italeri Starfighter and they are a good kit, but I added a lot of scratchbuilt details, including a scratch built tail section to make it an accurate ASA version. The metal took the most of time to do and it is a pain! I designed custom decals for this kit to make it exactly like the one that my customer flew in Italy. He also told me their planes were famous for being very dirty, and thats the way he wanted it. He supplied lots of pictures and good God their planes are filthy lol!
This kit took around 150 hours or more...I lost count!
