I'm in awe - excellent looking 104! Photography is great - can you tell something about how you did the lighting? Tractor looks good too -is that a kit?

They are 3 cheap 500w halogen with "soft boxes" made with recycled cardboard, aluminium film for kitchen and baking paper.....very inexpensive set, but I'm not satisfied even I use this system for years, I hope soon to move to pro-studio flash. Tractor are my production, see the signature.

Absolutely stunning. The natural metal finish is outstanding.

Very nice build and diorama. Is the Revell kit the same as the Italeri 1/72 F-104C, didn't there was an alternative? Have the Italeri kit in the stash, hope it comes out half as good as this one!

Lovely build!

I've been wishing to build one of the Big Eye escorts for some time now. What decals did you use, please?

Decals are from various sources of spare parts, not a specific sheet.

Thanks! I was hoping you could shed a light on where you got your yellow lightning(s) for the tail. Everything else seems indeed quite generic.
