  1. Yet another superlative build, φίλε Τάσο!
    Having seen the real thing quite a few times, I can only say that it is really hard to distinguish your model from the real thing. Excellent painting and weathering.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous and delicate paintwork! Amazing!

  3. Amazing job on a camo F-104! Weathering makes it look so great.

    Congrats on a winner.

  4. An absolute winner, Tzigkounakis @t-tasos

  5. Wow, you really nailed that "ratty HAF look" in the paint! This is some excellent work and a great result.

  6. A fantastic build 😊 stunning weathering and finish 👍

  7. Great looking work!

  8. There are some models that go over and above. Raise the bar and make modeling interesting. The header photo really does give that brief suspension of reality and your convinced that your looking at the "real thing".

  10. That's a very realistic "rocket"...well done!

  11. Awesome F-104, Tzigkounakis I'm in the middle of a Hasegawa F-104, looking forward to the same multi-colored camo pain scheme. Your weathering and panel line accents are top-notch, really well done!

  15. That is really a fantastic build, with excellent paint and weathering. It certainly looks the part, especially in the first picture. You really captured the look of a very well worn service aircraft.
