I agree with Chuck,   


   That upside down pic make my skin kinda crawl,    You Sir Are a Brave Soul....



I also Disagree with Chuck,


   I have seen plenty of pics of Proud Crew Chiefs who kept THEIR 104's Immaculate.


Normally I'm a weather kinda guy,   but this airplane need to be CLEAN.......with those LINES and NMF

Beautiful build of a Canadian mud mover, Ron! Everytime I see one of these, it still boggles the mind that these were a ground attack bomber!


When I was posted to Germany in the early 80s, it seemed not a week went by where some CAF or Luftwaffe pilot wouldn't dump his 104. It almost got to be commonplace.


Personally, I think a very light weathering would take the "Canadair new plane" sheen off of it, but like I said, it's a personal opinion.

Wow!! Not sure how I missed this one. Very nicely finished CF-104 Ron. I've always liked a newly rolled out CF-104, and that's how I picture yours. I'd leave it alone.

Hi Ron, absolutely magnificent. To add my two cents worth to the discussion, I like to see models as close to the condition the original appeared in. However, I have seen a few photos of Canadian 104s lately, and in all cases they were immaculate, so my vote in this particular instance would be to keep it clean.

Great model !

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Thx for all the kind comments. I am keeping it clean, I have no finished builds that are clean so this stands out. The shot on its back did no harm, it's not like it was dragged across the pavement. Alls good
