Not much to report except I only had time to paint about 1/2 of my fuel tanks with the new red this week. I'm going out of town for the weekend, so nothing's going to get done.


One question I'd like to bring to the group: Does anyone have advice for weathering this model? 


I do OK with weathering non-NMF models, but my NMF model weathering skills have really fallen short so far, IMO. Not that I think there's a lot to be done: the CF-104 pictures I've looked at show them to be relatively clean looking, with just a little general wear, but no obvious weathering patterns. I've also looked at US air force NMF F-104s and observed them to be relatively clean.


My observations of the real world are that natural metal and gloss paint don't provide the right surface for dirt and grime to stick.  So, any weathering I will do will need to be subtle.


Any advice? Special tricks?
