Eduard/Hasegawa 1:48 F-104G Starfighter

Recommended Posts

I've always been fascinated by the Starfighter, it's such a beautiful (and weird) looking machine and I've never build one - so I decided to put that right. I opted for the Eduard "Bundesfighter" kit as I saw it reduced – superb Hasegawa plastic, with 10 decal options and plenty of PE and resin goodies included - what's not to like! I chose the Bavarian scheme because coincidentally I saw the actual aircraft at the Luftwaffe museum at Berlin Gatow quite a few years ago. It's been repainted and stuck on a pole since it's glory days in the 80s though.

 

It's a great kit but probably at the extreme end of my skill level with some tricky (and very small) detail work in the cockpit - I left the canopy loose as I couldn't bare to seal up all the work, hence it doesn't fit in some of the photos. Anyway, here's some pictures, hope you enjoy them!
