Finally, here is the third of the trio of two-seater Starfighters I have been working on the past month-and-a-half.
This time it's Lockheed TF-104G Starfighter FN-M (s/n 62-12263 - c/n 5508), 331 skvadron, KNL (Royal Norwegian AF), at Bodø AB, 1964-72.

This time, I used an Ace Corporation reboxing of the Revell kit. This Korean brand reboxed several Revell kits in around 2007. I bought this one misled by the boxart depicting an Italian AF machine in hopes of getting some option other than the two German ones of the original Revell kit. The contents turned out to be exactly the same. Mark I's reboxing last year came to the rescue with a variety of options and schemes and since I was building the two kits of the box, I built this one too, using one of the remaining decal options.

 

The kit was built OOB except for the seats which were replaced by spare Lockheed-type bang seats offered in the Mark I kit and a blade antenna I added on the spine behind the cockpit. The kit was fully painted and varnished with brush.

 

Thanks for looking
Miguel
