1/48 Hasegawa F-104 J
Another LHS find acquired cheap. The kit came with Japanese markings but I decided to use mid-sixties USAF decals on it...probably not accurate but I'll lose no sleep over it.
An easy, very well fitting kit to assemble I did it OOB which provided sufficent detail to satistfy me. After primer I sprayed Model Masters gloss black acrylic overall and after a couple days to cure completely sprayed it with two coats of Alcad II polished aluminum. Alcad II acrylic clear coat was sprayed after three days since decal setting solution will supposedly attack and damage Alcad paint and this would have annoyed me to no end.
I'm pretty pleased with the shiny thing
