    Italeri TF-104G

    Coming sometime in the future to a magazine (hence only one photo - sorry, no more or I'll be in trouble with the Editor), here's my rendition of the Italeri two-seat Starfighter. The subject was an aircraft of 31 (Tiger) Sqn, Belgian AF, 1983. The tip tanks were used for the 1983 NATO Tiger meet, just before Belgium finally retired the F-104. Decals by DACO, intake covers & chocks by Video Aviation, pitot by Master, and RBF tags by HGW. Thanks for looking.
  2. I used the Italeri kit for this when I really should have bought the Hobby Boss model. The Italeri kit is a difficult build, the fit is poor, the detail is lacking and the stance, hmm. Hinds sit very much nose up, tail down, the kit, as you can see sits far too level. I originally started this as part of a group build bit it stalled, only for me to pull it out over Christmas to finish it off. I used the Blue Rider decals for the markings that dad bought me a while ago. They were actually pretty good. I also whipped up a little base, just because. It will sit in my cabinet next to my Mongolian IL-2M3. Now, onto my Mongolian Mil 17 and Mig 21!
  3. Well it's done - not sure what to make of this kit, it's full of 'niggles' and silly errors by Italeri but it does end up quite nice. If it was Revell pricing it would be great, but it's Tamiya pricing so feels overpriced for what you get, especially with the errors. Peter
  4. Started this over the last couple of days, and finally got to the point where there's something to show I also have the full Brassin set - consisting of Seat, Nozzle and wheels Work unsurprisingly starts in the cockpit, the first stage with the Brassin is replacing the seat rails with the resin replacement, complete with a couple of PE spacers Then primed with Black Styrenex primer, followed by Mr Hobby Aircraft Grey as a base Then started painting and weathering the seat and cockpit floor - not started on the actual cockpit yet, and the seat is simply slotted in the rails for the moment Peter
  5. Thanks for looking.
  6. Well let's get this site loaded up. I started a build last year of Italeri's new 1/32 F-104 A/C kit using a lot of stuff I haven't used yet. Here's a photo of the starting lineup: I've got the kit (duh), along with Eduard's exhaust for early -104s as well as their PE set for the gun bay. My plan is to feature the electronics bay and the gun bay opened on a well-worn -104 assigned to the Puerto Rico ANG. I'll also be using the decals from Victory productions: Colors to be provided by Hataka Paints - I've sprayed some briefly on my paint mule with good results, so we will all see where that takes us later. Now let's get started on our journey of plastic goodness. Just to get off on the right foot, I figured I'd start with something simple - hacking up the gun bay to accommodate the PE from Eduard. Here's my first cuts: And with the basic PE taped in place: Throughout this misadventure your questions, comments, and observations (and critiques - I'm not sensitive) are profoundly welcomed. Thanks for looking - see you tomorrow with the next installment. John
