This is my newest project, a cold war icon. It really brings speed to one's mind just to look at her. Nice kit, decals ok, one or two almost were ruined when leaving the film. Another one I did it myself, with some Tamiya extra thin glu[...]
The 1/72 Esci F-104 kits were re-boxed by AMT. The kits are pretty nice with extra fine recessed panel lines and the option to build the short tail A or C version or the more common long tail version used by most countries except the US and a fe[...]
This is my Hasegawa F-104 Starfighter. Nice kit to build OOB, although some of the decals were not that nice.
First time using Gunze Mr. Metal Color Aluminum and I was not pleased. I mean, the color was beautiful, but it kept releasing[...]
I was looking at headlines and came across Tommy Killander USAF 104 Starfighter. Like it very much so I decided to post mine own that I done about 4 years ago. By the way this is not to compete against Tommy's 104. This is when I first started t[...]
This build that I did as a tribute to one of my favorite movies - The Right Stuff, made by Philip Kaufmann in 1983. The Eduard 1/48 "Bundesfighter" kit (reboxed Hasegawa with some aftermarket) has the decals for the aircraft individual that wher[...]

Another one from the recent past. Hasegawa's F-104G with as much aftermarket stuff as I could cram into it. This was an important lesson in 'critical mass'; the idea that at some point Gewgaw A and What's-it B will eventual interfere with Thingi[...]
Eduard (Hasegawa) 1/48.
Here (finally!) the F-104G Natofighter Eduard 1/48 that I was happy to receive here (as "awards of the month" winner) 19 months ago (October 2015).
I used almost all the available detailing sets (except the radome) : t[...]
