CF-104 CAF Starfighter ‘1971 Tiger Bird’ – Academy 1/72

This build was a testing stage for painting this Tiger Meet scheme after seeing a similar paint scheme at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. The biggest concern was being able to completely separate the Yellow from any Black overspray while [...]

F-104G Luftwaffe Starfighter – Hasegawa 1/72

I finally found the missing gas tank behind a book shelf! I actually completed this build about 9 months ago but could not find the starboard wing gas tank which was found just a few days ago as I did some rearranging of shelving. This was one o[...]

F-104J “Eiko” (Eduard 1/48)

This build has started with this bottle of wine more than a year ago. It was a present, and then I've realized that I'm keeping in my hands a wine produced by Gordon Cooper – a pilot, test-pilot, astronaut. And since then, I've started to look f[...]

UPDATE – 1/32 Scale Italeri F-104G ASA-M Italian Air Force with real aluminum skin

Italeri 1/32 F104C Starfighter

This is my take on the Italeri F104C as it may have looked while operating out of Udorn, Thailand circa 1967. I did add a resin cockpit and seat plus resin afterburner/exhaust . Kit decals were used and they were excellent.

F-104G Starfighter, Eggbeck A.B. 1973

This is new tooled Italeri kit (scale 1:32) and it is very straightforward build with very few issues. I had troubles to glue rear part of the fuselage because when using kit the engine support I was 3 ° off axis (to right side). I decided to gl[...]

HASEGAWA 1/48, out of box build including kit decals. Filled most of the rivet holes on wings and tail, since these were puttied over on the teal one. Model painted in Alclad, mostly aluminium and dark aluminium. Japan JASDF operated the F-104J [...]

Hi all This is a Revell kit with Aires resin cockpit and wheels bays. It represent a Belgian AF fighter circa 1978. Not very well adjustments but the final result looks like a Starfighter. Hope you like It Sifredo Cubas

I was looking at headlines and came across…

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[...]
