  1. I like this tiny 1/144 kits as I take them as a stress-reduction therapy between bigger projects. I wanted to give it a try to a couple Luftwaffe jets, the first one being this, the F-104G from Revell. The kit offers two options for markings, I will build the 26+53 from WTB61 (Technical Test Facility 61) at Manching, 1991. The kit provides a decent cockpit, main wheel well, workable front wheel well, nice landing gear, and jet engine exhaust, scribing is really nice. Only thing I would have expected is an option for open canopy, only closed option is avail

  3. 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

  5. My last bird, done during the lockdown. A one month project, according to this péculiar period, with limited scratch an corrections. The challenge was to paint it red and avoid a "toy" effect, Hope you’ll like it Complete buid here : http://fighters.forumactif.com/t93313-gb-oursin-vorace-f-104-starfighter-eiko-eduard-profipack-148 Fabrice https://www.facebook.com/Fabrice-Simon-104518141316306
  6. 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
  7. 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

  9. I am a fan of models belonging to the vintage category, i.e. old models released until the end of the 1980s (the limit date is 1989). I also like to renew models and I love the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter plane. I decided to renew and modernize the F-104 model from the Matchbox set with the catalog number PK-28, which I bought as model scrap at one of the auction sites. darmowy hosting obrazków I started working on the model by putting it together and removing old paint. I used a caustic soda solution for this. I removed paint residue with a

Starfighters in Combat (48020a) 1:48 Iliad Designs This is a welcome release of Iliad’s popular sheet depicting F-104s in service around the world, all of which saw active service of some sort, at the end of one end or another of an opponent’s missiles or guns. If you’ve seen the original set, you’ll know broadly what to expect, and it arrives in an A5 ziplok bag, with the instructions doubling as the header and a full A5 sheet of decals separated from each other by dotted lines. The instructions are excellent as usual with a brief descri

  12. I Made this 1/32 italian Air Force F-104s maintenance diorama starting from the Italeri model, I added a lot of detail using commercial add-ons but also a lot of scratchbuilt ones, expecially inside the plane. All was made using real pictures and books as reference. You will find the RAT, and the fuel pipes on the back of the plane and many other all around the plane you can find in the detail pic. I've made new carts and ladders and other details around the diorama. The scenery was made using photo-paint and printer.

    Eurofighter

    Hallo Today I want to make some remarks on the famous Eurofighter. This aircraft is the famous newspaper a/c, since headlines are a constant accompany in this a/c life. It is comparable with the public life of the F-104 Starfighter. Anyway, the history of its design dates back to the 1980s to Israel. The Lavi was born. I was eyewitness of her maiden flight. This outstanding fighter. The US prohibited any further development or production to Israel. The US acted and acts the same way as the Catholic Church in the Middle Age. To prohibit knowledge to the common people. So, the drawings
  14. 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 (Repub

  16. 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 abov
  17. I have been working on this project for a couple of weeks now. The progress is slow as I want to super detail this model using CMK detail sets. I will be using superb DACO decals for Belgian Air Force. The aircraft I have in mind is one in the retirement scheme with yellow wing tanks in Tiger Meet scheme. I m using Lock On 1 Lockheed F-104G-J Starfighter book as a reference. This book has very good detailed pictures of almost areas covered by CMK sets. First steps to accommodate extensive CMK detail sets is to butcher the fuselage port and sta
  18. 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
  19. I love all of the century series fighters - but If I had to choose only one, it would be Starfighter. I recently built three different models of the Starfighter - not only different versions, but also different model brands. The models are as follow: Italeri 1/72 F-104C Starfighter (No. 1359) [Based on old Esci F-104 from early '80s] Revell 1/72 F-104G Starfighter (No. 03904) [Revell new tool 1995] Hasegawa 1/72 F-104S Starfighter (No. 00447) [Hasegawa new tool 1989] I can't really say about model accuracy but ALL are good models to build with different streng
  20. Hi, I'm going in with Hasegawa 1/72 F-104 Starfighter. Like I mentioned in the GB Chat, this is not a favorite aircraft for me. And other modeller friends of mine would just giving me weird looks for saying that... So probably this built will make me 'love' it more This was the start, around a week ago before I pack it and depart with me for my workplace. Paint all the cockpit area with Mr.Color H370 as per instructions sheet Didn't have the mood to post, or start the build until 2 days ago and able to paint and built the cockpit, scratch a s
  21. This is my third airplane model F-104 at Britnodeller. Tum together, a tiny model from Crown, also sold by Revell. This is one of the oldest models in my collection and is about 30 years old. The model was renovated by me and re-painted. Originally, he wore the Liftway markings currently Japanese JSDAF. Decals are original from the Revell set. obrazki na avatar
  22. I present the renewal and repair of the vintage Lockheed F-104G Starfighter model from the 1/72 scale Matchbox set. The model has received a new cabin hood made by itself, a cockpit made from scratch and fuel tanks at the wing ends from the ESC F-104 kit. The Decisions of the Spanish Air Force also come from the ESCI kit. Model painted with Mr.Hobby H series and Bilmodel. Gallery models The original state, painting of the German Luftwaffe. Removal of old paint and decal. Cocpit, ejection seat Lockheed C-
  23. I caved in... This is the Hasegawa Starfighter I will try to build (and actually finish) for this GB: I haven't decided on the scheme yet but I am leaning towards a grey ASA or ASA-M. Jens
  24. Grew up on a Canadian AirForce Base. As a kid, watching and hearing jets flying overhead every waking day, was like growing up in the movie, 'The Right Stuff', a fantastical experience for others, that seemed just normal to me, except on those days at the airbase watching a supersonic jet fly overhead, as you turn and watch it flash past overhead without any sound, and the sonic boom hitting you from behind, scaring the crap out of you. Back then the pilots were allowed to break the sound barrier at the yearly air shows, but not today because of the damage to people's ears and nearby buildings
