  1. Hi all, Here's my just finished 1/72 Tamiya F-84G Thunderjet. I originally wanted to build this for the F-84 Group Build that is currently going on here on BM, but I never bothered to take in progress photo's. I decided to build it as a Taiwanese Air Force one. You don't see many builds from that part of the world, despite having a quite a big range of aircraft they have operated over the years. I used a Bestfong sheet, with mixed results, because they are from two different printers. The roundels and tail stripes are like Cartograf or Microscale, while the rest is more like classic Academy decals. Thick and plastic-y. Some DACO decal solution did the trick, though. I had some trouble with the primer (Alclad grey gloss), not wanting to stick to the plastic, causing cracks in the metallic paints, but in the end it looks alright. Painted with various metallic lacquers from Mr. Color, MRP and Alclad. Thanks for looking, Pete
  2. Hi gang, After announcing what my second build would be for the GB I thought it was time to actually make a proper post for it even if I won't start it for about a week until my F-7 is closer to the finish line. I have chosen what I consider (and many others) to be one of the true icons of the Cold War, the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter. When it comes to the 1980's in the geographic scope of this GB there are only two options open, namely either Japan or Taiwan. having built a JASDF F-104J a couple of years ago I decided that this build would be in the colours of the ROCAF (Republic Of China Air Force) and you can't really have a collection of F-104's without a ROCAF one in it as they operated every version of the F-104 with the exception of the C and F and scored the first ever kills for the type when 4 f-104's engaged a formation of PLAAF J-6's and Major Hu Shih-lin and Captain Shih Bei-puo each shot down one of the J-6's over the disputed island of Qemoy. The kit I will be using is the Eduard NATO boxing of the venerable Hasegawa F-104G which comes with a couple of resin extras (basically just one each of the Martin Baker or Lockheed ejector seats) and a very nice decal sheet which will be of no use whatsoever for this build, here is a shot of the box top; And the contents to prove that the plastic is as yet untouched; A shot of the resin extras along with a couple of other resin bits I have that should find their way into the build and the etched fret that Eduard add to the box; The lovely, but useless for this build, decal sheet; And a look at the sheet I have ordered from Bestfong in Taiwan which should hopefully arrive in time; I have used one of their sheets before when I built a ROCAF P-47N a few years ago and that sheet was of excellent quality so I have no doubt that these will be of the same quality, we shall see. I've had great service from them so far as the sheets I ordered were dispatched within 24 hours of placing the order and I was given a tracking number, which works! Thanks for looking in and as usual any comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  3. Hi all, Latest one of the production line is my 3rd Hasegawa 1/48 F-104 Starfighter (an Eduard boxing this time) finished in the markings of the Republic Of China Air Force (ROCAF) as she would have appeared in the early 1980's. Painted with a mix of Gunze and Xtracrylix paints and finished with Bestfong decals ( excellent by the way) I hope you like her. For those of you not put off by the pictures above here is a link to the wip, Thanks for looking and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
