This is the Hasegawa F-104C backdated to a Tennessee Air National Guard “A” model from the early 1960s. This is one of those planes I’ve always wanted to model but couldn’t get proper decals. IPMS USA came to the rescue this past August by is[...]
This finished build relates back to the Salty Modeller bit i posted a week ago where i was delving into the salt weathering technique. I won't go back over the process i used here but suffice to say it has been one of the most fun things i have[...]
