Another F-104 Starfighter, this time an Italian example belonging to 28 Gruppo Stormo, Villafranca, circa 1992.

 

Markings were from Tauro, Sky decal and for the squadron markings stencils were made using a Silhouette Portrait cutter. The Daco improvement set provided the chaff dispensers and the internal camera bay.

That is just great. Looks really good! Never knew Italian F-104s used the same chaff dispensers as some of the F-5As. 

 

Great work!

Very nice - a great build and a Starfighter! What could be better? Aside from the F-104 connection I have a soft spot for Villafranca machines, having visited there a couple of times in the 1980s....

Smashing Italian recce Starfighter and honestly the Lockheed product looks more appealing than what's flying today.

By the way - small point - the two triangular antennas are on the large side.

Hi Martin, yes, I agree - I was in two minds whether to add them.  They’re from the Daco improvement set, a godsend for ‘104 modellers.

The AN/ALE40  they have been installed for the “Ace Guard” (Desert Storm) based on Erhac AB Turkey from 6-1-1991 to 10-3-91 together with the Orpheus pod.

It seems to me that there were no stencils on the chaff/flares, only on Marineflieger F-104, i've these in my catalog in 1/32 scale.

I recently bought a Hasegawa F-104G for my stash. Looking at your model, which looks fantastic, may prompt me to more mine higher up the to-do list.

I really like the Spillone / 104 when loaded with something on the wings!

Looks like business!
