1/72 Italeri F-104G Starfighter

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt



When the F-104 in the colours of the STARFIGHTERS ( HOME | Starfighters ) came out, I knew that I need to build it.  In the meanwhile it´s hard to get this kit.

I like the Italeri kit, it´s easy to build and the parts are fitting very well. 

Only the antennas on the lower fuselage and the red anti collision light in front of the vertical stabilizer were added. 

I painted the models with brush and used enamels from Humbrol and Revell. The decals are printed in a very good quality and are also matching well, especially the thin lines on the fuselage surprised me in a positive way. 

I sealed the model with shiny varnish from Mr. Hobby.
