I know, that Italeri Starfighter is not supposed to be the best model ever, but in this year catalogue, they have an A/C version.

Although it got some bad press to start with, there are increasingly good opinions of the F-104G/S release, which is warming on me...

http://www.cybermode...d_it_2502.shtml

The new SAC metal gear (which cleans up the poor kit part moulding match), the inevitable (eventually!) Eduard cockpit etch and a bit of sanding and filler will turn the Italeri kit into a great model. I'm assuming CMK and Aries stuff will fit the Italian job.

However, still unconvinced that £89 is a reasonable price and there's the forthcoming AFV kit to consider. Dunno if they're doing a G and a C - would really like a TF-104 myself.

My Father told me two things would happen as I got older.
I can't remember either of them....
