Sounds like a very interesting package, and the preorder price is IMHO pretty good for this kit with the extra content

Extra /new decals

Anything else?

Same question. Is there other photoetch than the fret included in the standard boxing? Preorder price is the same as for the original kit at my usual shop.

Hasegawa commercial strategy emulates Kinetic? Release, re-release, rebox, re-re-release, re-re-box... 😎

Good old memories from a spotters day at Volkel in the early eighties, a scan from one of my slides. Staffie forever!

You have to admire the rate Kinetic are pushing out the boxings. This is third or fourth since Sep? 
 

Apparently sales are correlated most closely to the number of markings options available. I can see quite a few more boxings on the way.

Release expected in July 2020 - ref. K48089 - Lockheed F-104G/TF-104G Starfighter - 2 in One kit. This mean the box will contain all the needed parts to build a two-seater OR a single seater at your convenience, so two options but not two kits (just like the Mirage 2000C/D ref. K48071 link and the S-2A/E/G ref. K48074 link).

Nice!

but 2 in 1 meaning you could build either, no?

Not 2 kits....

There F-16 kits had the same sloggan, i think it just means a 2 seater...2 pilots in one aircraft..

Nope exdraken is right. The kit will come with the existing F-104G fuselage sprue and a new TF-104G fuselage sprue.

From minute 24:30

The sound of the F-104 four-ship formation passing overhead brings back a lot of pleasant memories.....if only I had access to a time machine!
