Hello,

 

I've just seen that Italeri released a new box of their F-104G/S with a new sprue, with an Orpheus reccon pod and 2 chaff dispensers.

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. :)

"unfortunately" it doesn't suit the Dutch 104's it was orriginated for, the orpheus pod had a more streamlined front in part with the rest of the body, as opposed to the Italian version, but i guess with a cut  TLC  along the horizontal plain it could be adjusted........

Unfortunately, I haven't even yet gotten the straight F-104G, as it just seems too darned expensive, at least to me.


Kevin

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

Looks like it’s in stock at Hannants.

https://www.hannants.../product/IT2514

Wonder how/when it will make it to the US since I think Hobbico was Italeri’s US distributior.

This looks to be a good one, and FINALLY a model company who got the Canadian Maple Leaf correct for a change.....and even looks to be the correct blue on the roundel........ good going !  FINALLY......although I have a ton of aftermarket roundels, it is still a good thing and attention to detail....... might have to get this one....
