Italeri F-104S ASA Starfighter

Recommended Posts

And after a marathon session last night - this thing is done and off the bench:

Overall - glad I built it and happy to have a 104 in the display cabinet, but the sloppiness of the Italeri kit makes the finish out maddening, and the decals, even though Cartograf printed, are rather thick. If I were doing this again, I'd strongly consider doing a West German one using Daco's huge sheet.

Hi 

 

gorgeous F104 , very well done, it's very clean , paint and weathering are top notch ....It seems that this Italieri kit is far better than their last Mirage one ,which is a pity to built

She's gorgeous Doug !

Very good painting job, and the decals look good to me, i cannot notice any carrier film.

 

It seems you used the Eduard exhaust, you have the same (little) problem than me, it protrudes a bit too much. I gave up modifying it. Hushhhhh, nobody would notice it ! :)

Yeah, that's straight in FICE (F it, close enough) territory for me
