Hi folks :D

Here is my entry for this years (Bodensee) GB. :)
I will use a 1/32 Revell F-104G with a TrueDetails Resincockpit, some scratchbuilding and TauroDecals.
The main problem will be airbrushing the tigerstripes as there are no decals for them.
But I hope I will somehow come close to the original :D

Here are some shots of the TrueDetails Cockpit for the F-104.
Sadly it's a bit "dirty" and I have to clean it up :rolleyes:

Hi Starfighter :blink:
I got the cockpit from www.buyamodel.com. Don't know if they still have them in stock. I bought mine about 1 year ago.

I tossed the idea using the resin cockpit as it represents a G-Version and not an S-Version.
And as I won't open the canopy I will now use the Revell cockpit tube with some small adjustments :lol:
But first of all, I have to scratch build a new ejection seat. I'm using an old Revell Phantom II seat here.

Some update on my seat.
I used some Milliput for the upper cushion and a resin block for the parachute housing. It's a little bit too small I I don't care :blink:
For the seatbelts I used some Tamiya tape and aluminium kitchen foil.
It doesn't look exactly like an GQ7A but what the heck ;)

Ready for painting ;)

And as the seat is too high I have to cut and glue the canopy in the open position.

Some scratchbuilding in the tube. I used the TrueDetails cockpit as a guide.

And I also altered the instrument panel a little bit, to replicate a S-Version panel
