  1. All bets are off ! It is rumoured to be a - money maker - unpreviously announced kit. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Kineticmodel/posts/1244366542397121 V.P.
  2. Przedstawiam model Lockheed F-104G Starfightet ze starożytnego zestawu, który został ukończony dzisiaj Hasegawa (premiera rynkowa w 1963 roku) w edycji brytyjskiej firmy FROG. Prezentowany na zdjęciach model pochodzi z pierwszej edycji FROG, która odbyła się w 1969 roku. Różnił się od późniejszej edycji elementami podwozia głównego, które składało się z 6 elementów, aw nowszych edycjach - jednym z wyższym sztywność. Starałem się pokazać jak najbardziej pudełkowaty charakter modelu bez wyceny, która mi się podoba (tylko osłona kabiny jest dociskana ze względu na uszkodzenie oryginału i rurk
  3. Hi guys, my last project is F-104G Starfighter from Eduard limited edition. A very enjoyable work with no problems. I painted with my own blends of green and brown, mostly Tamiya and Gunze. Small details in cockpit with Vallejo. Eduard included a resin ejection seat, masks, PE parts and very good Cartograf decals (stencils prinded by Eduard). I added a pitot tube from Master. I made wash and weathering with artist oil paints.
  4. For the 1/72 scale Starfighters the Hasegawa is the best one - not by a huge margin but still best all around kit with best details. Now, Hasegawa only does CF-104, F-104G and F-104S - and not the early A or C models. But there are several early Starfighters I would like to do - so I wanted to try that how viable it is to backdate a Hasegawa F-104. This is my starting point, a Hasegawa CF-104. The F-104G and F-104S packings are very similar but with few notable differences. This kit has the correct wheel well covers for both A and C and if you want to do a F-104C in So
  5. Modellers Data File #36 - The F-104 Starfighter (9781838045807) MA Publications The F-104 Starfighter (or missile with a man in it) was Lockheed's & Kelly Johnson's attempt to reverse the trend for large more complex fighters then being developed. It was basically an engine with very little airframe surrounding it. The aircraft had a short life in the US with them going towards heavier and more complex aircraft. The Starfighter did have much more success with NATO nations, though it would later transpire that this success was gained someway by Lockheed bribing
  6. Hi everyone, here is my recent completion for the Interceptors group build. It’s a Danish CF-104D made from kinetic’s 1/48 release and is OOB except for some (rubbish) decals that all silvered badly. Starboard side is going through a process of fixing that issue but Port side is shown here, with lesser but still present silvering and all. here’s the build thread: and it’s based on this airframe... And here with her older sister-
  7. Seen in the Eduard Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/EduardCompany 1/48 Lockheed F-104G Starfighter???? - New kit (MiG-21 style!)? - Reboxing: Revellogram, ESCI or Hasegawa + improvement sets? - New PE or/& resin sets? IMHO the DACO set (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234933435-148-lockheed-f-104-starfighter-updatedetailing-set-by-daco-released) and decals + the Hasegawa kit are good enough. V.P.
  8. Hello friends Some of you may have been following my build report. Now it's time to hire it here at the RFI. It was different and was a lot of fun. So I am satisfied. I am open to constructive criticism.
  9. F-104N Starfighter z zestawu Akademii ukończony. Ten model kosztował mnie dużo pracy, ale efekt końcowy wygląda moim zdaniem całkiem nieźle. Zapraszamy do galerii.
  10. Hello Friends ! As a fan of Lockheed F-104 Starfighter and a fan of vintage models, I took the aircraft model from the Academy kit in 1/72 scale. It is a clone of the Hasegawa kit from 1963 and, like the original, has the same simplifications and errors such as the lack of undercarriage hatches, a primitive cockpit and a fatal cabin cover. I decided to slightly modify the model and supplement it with missing elements

  15. I would like to take part in this GB with the 1/48th Monogram Lockheed F-104G Starfighter. This is the 1986 #5447 version of this venerable kit that was first released in 1978 and last in 2013. This version was released as the specially painted "Buschel Canary" operated by Jbg 33 and was retired in 1985. I paid £4.39 for the kit on eBay 11 years ago and I almost sent it back, the box smelled of mildew and sadly the decals are unusable. Not sure how I am going to paint her yet, maybe a 'Tiger' scheme but I have plenty of choices. Whilst looking around in the stash I foun
  16. Here's my first offerings and my first Starfighter too! the box art shows the Richthofen Squadron logo on the intake but the decals do not. I have looked online and I cannot tell what it represents. Decals... Here's a closeup. Looks vaguely NATO-ish to me... --John
  17. Avantgarde Model Kits (AMK) is reported by MMCT Facebook Group as working on a 1/48th Lockheed F-104G Starfighter kit - ref. Considering the MMCT support to the project I guess we can expect soon or later a RoCAF "long nose" F-104G with the HIAC-1 LOROP system - http://www.916-starfighter.de/F-104_ROCAF_LOROP_H.Prins.pdf To be followed Sources: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MilitaryModelingSRG/permalink/2374473086101901/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/MilitaryModelingSRG/permalink/2374473086101901/ Original box art as anonymou
  18. F-104J/F-104DJ [2in1] Starfighter JASDF (K48092) 1:48 Kinetic Model via Lucky Model The Starfighter was another of Kelly Johnson’s advanced designs, although some might argue that at least initially it wasn’t one of his best. The initial design had problems with the ejection seat, which fired downward in early models, but its original remit was a high-altitude interceptor so that wouldn’t really have been an issue in all but the most extreme situations. When its role was widened this became a greater problem, as did its relatively high landing speed and comparat
  19. It is February 1971 and after the close shave of the Apollo 13 mission the previous April, security around the Apollo 14 mission is fierce. The problems encountered by the previous mission had been put to the public as a failure of an oxygen tank on the Apollo 13 Command Module. However, the real story was kept secret from the public for fear of the panic it might cause. Pictures of the Alien space ship that attacked Apollo 13 were captured on the TV camera James A Lovell had been preparing to stow away after that day's scheduled telecast was finished. This footage and the damage c
  20. Hi all, Here's my just finished Kinetic 1/48 Starfighter, which I have done as a Dutch RF-104G, using the boxing released for the Dutch market, and a Daco Orpheus pod. The markings come from a Dutch Decal sheet, and some from the kit. It's a very nice kit, and I thoroughly enjoyed building it. One small thing that needs to be fixed in the kit, is the missing centreline pylon, though. The kit comes only with the twin AIM-9 launchers for the belly, but all the options in the first release, and this boxing are for strike squadrons, which do need the centreline pylon for weapons. I got

  22. Hi, Please find my latest build the Kinetic Starfighter converted to a CF-104 used by AETE and in early 1970's markings. Probably the most challenging build I have ever done. I made some unnecessary errors along the way, which are described in detail in a WIP thread that I did over the past few weeks. So for anyone interested in my blunders.... Thankfully I received a lot of information from our Canadian Britmodelers, some who had worked in the RCAF/CAF and some who worked on the actual CF-104's. Thanks again, for your help. I did
  23. Hi, My next project will be Kinetic's F-104G Starfighter. I have not decided what scheme to choose. The box is the Dutch "Volkel" edition, but I would really like to have a metal finish, so I think that leaves a Dutch version out of the equation..........? There is an all grey Dutch version, but this may be a little bland for a f-104: I am leaning towards a Norwegian f-104 in all NMF, although Eduard does a standard boxing of this scheme. It does look rather cool: Then there is also a

"SUMMER 1982 - INTERCEPTION" CF-104 Starfighter, Royal Norwegian Air Force, 334sq Kit: Hasegawa F-104J/CF-104 Starfighter (#D16) Scale: 1/72 Aftermarket: Master pitot, Eduard photoetch, Reskit wheels, Vingtor decals Paints: Vallejo Model Color, Model Air & Metal Color Weathering: Flory Models Wash, Mig weathering Products Good kit, a solid choice for 1:72 Starfighter.
