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

Well here I am again in aluminum hell! I promised I wouldn't do another metal skin airplane for awhile but I got hired to do another one and I can't say no lol. 90% of the details are completed so it is on to all the metal work. I can tell you t[...]

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[...]

I was looking at headlines and came across…

The Right Stuff – Bundesfighter goes to Hollywood

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[...]

F-104C Starfighter in Vietnam

Hi folks, This is a cool new site. It has inspired me to add a little article. I'm building Italeri's 1/32 F-104C. It's a decent kit but lacks the refinement and detail you might find with some other manufacturers. I was drawn to the scal[...]
