F-104G Starfighter

10 Wing / 31 Squadron Belgian Air Force

Kliene Brogel, 1980

 

 

F-104 BAF 014

 

The old Esci kit, which is pretty good considering its age, finished with even older Daco decals. This was from the original Daco Belgian F-104 sheet, not the amazing recent issue.

 

This was built to try out some Mig paints which sprayed very well, though they do give a very matt finish. This was their '60s-70s USAF' set. The lighter of the greens worked well for a Belgian F-104, but I think the lighter of the greens would need some darkening for USAF use. I used 3 or 4 coats of Klear prior to decals and finished with a top coat mixture of Humbrol satin and matt varnish.

 

The 'Tiger Tanks' on the original were left overs from a 1970s Tiger Meet.

It's a '104 and a great build. It deserves praise on both counts!

Marvellous build, every inch the part. At the time I was hoping the new F16,s would wear this scheme ,shame.

Absolutely brilliant.

I seem to be the only one who is unsure of the scale. I know the 1/72 F-104, and I suspect they had a 1/48 kit as well.

Just curious. Outstanding model, irrespective of the scale!

hello CT-Modeler,

Job well done.  Event though this is Esci vintage, it looks very professional.

Regards, Orion, The Netherlands.
