Hasegawa 1/48 USAF F-104 Starfighter

Hello, 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[...]

Hasegawa F-104C

F-104G Belgian Starfighter “all open”

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[...]
