    JASDF F-104 Decal Poll

    This, along with their forthcoming F5E and F together with USAF TF/F 104s', will be making their way into my stash as soon as they pop up here in the UK!!! The series is a brilliant set of little kits which really aid in not losing your modelling mojo!! Steve S. - waiting patiently for my Italeri TF104G.

    Dear All - Hannants here in the UK has just listed as in stock the long awaited TF.104G at £99.99. Happy Days!!! Steve S.

    JASDF F-104 Decal Poll

    Hi Jennings - I voted YES and would vote YES again and again for you to provide decals for JASDF '104s'!!! No instructions wouldn't be a biggy for me as there is a fair bit of info out there but I would plead with you to provide Hinomarus' as I, like a lot of modellers I know, really don't like masking, simple as it is! Stencils, squadron emblems and JASDF lettering is what's required, in my view and if you do this, in early 2019 even, I'll be a happy bunny! My money is ready and waiting for you. Excellent job on the Corsair decals by the way!!! Best regards, Steve S.

    TF-104G and (R)F-104G Italeri 1/32 on their way...

    Couldn't agree more with you RoyBoy!! Sadly JASDF markings for any of the post war jets etc has been only poorly supported and could well be a winner for someone as JASDF have flown F.86, F.86D, F.104, F.4 and F.15 to name but a few and there has been some really fantastic schemes on their aircraft!! Let's hope someone takes note and steps in to fill this yawning gap!! Regards, Steve S.

    Thanks for your kind offer dmthamade, but I have the remnants of that sheet and, like yours it's more yellow and faded than I'd like, so thanks. Jennings, I'm a patient man and can wait until 2019 - should you decide to produce JASDF decals - 'cos I know, based on your Corsair epic, it'll be right on the money! Whilst I wait for JASDF decals or maybe even the long promised Italeri boxing to include JASDF markings, my eye is being taken by the Luke AFB centennial bird in natural metal with the SUU-21/A bomblet dispenser - choices, choices!! Regards Steve S.

    TF-104G and (R)F-104G Italeri 1/32 on their way...

    I have a real desire to build the TF as F.104DJ 46-5008 of 207 FS, 83rd.Fighter Wing JASDF, in a light grey with orange exercise markings - my problem seems to rotate around the fact that Japanese generic and squadron marking decals are like the proverbial 'hens teeth' in 32nd. scale. Can any of you lovely people assist me in my quest? Regards, Steve S.

    Thanks Kagemusha, I couldn't have asked for more! Unfortunately VideoAviation is showing the SUU-21/A as currently out of stock so I'll just have to be patient. Regards, Steve S.

    Hi All again - just going back to 63-076 'wearing' an SUU-21/A practice bomb dispenser under it's starboard wing, would it have had the same under the port wing - if not what would it have, if anything? Regards, Steve S.
  9. Hi Don - my point exactly - out of 7 different boxings, only 3 are available in limited numbers and they aren't the most popular or have the 'mainstream' markings in the box - I'm sure the aftermarket decal manufacturers love them! I currently have 3 AFV Club F5E/F and a Freedom Models F20B/N Tigershark in the works and I have to say I'm enjoying every last minute building them! As a named "PhantomPhanatic" I must say I feel a bit of a traitor to my first love!!! Steve S.
  10. Yes Gary, "you build it and they will come!" - (sorry "Field of Dreams") - it's the intake and exhausts that are delaying my purchase of these kits and I know a number of others think this way. Tha AFV Club series of F5s' in 48th have 'spoilt' the F5 modeller as they show what can be done but they're getting a tad old and hard to come by now. Work your magic Gary! Steve S.
  11. Kittyhawk certainly seems to be pulling the stops out 'Tiger" wise and must certainly be applauded - just love it!! Now all we need is the aftermarket decal boys to go mad and bring out all those lovely schemes in 32nd. scale which, when we get the intake/exhaust covers in aftermarket, will certainly give us a great model! What a terrific time to be modelling in 32nd. scale!!!! Steve S.

    Thanks chaps - I should have known! This certainly adds an interesting alternative to just hanging a set of auxiliary fuel tanks. Regards, Steve S.
