F-104J Conversion

Well, I have finished building up a CF-104 with the Hasegawa J kit. Despite having a very limited workshop up here while working in Inuvik, I still managed to pump out an excellent model.  Having slacked off with my modeling for a while, I put this one out over the last two weeks.

I was impressed with this kits fit and ease of construction. I used Belcher Bits decals and they went on flawlessly, sucking down into the detail with Gunze's decal set.  Only a few minor bits of work remain upon return to Civilization, ie. ident lights and candy cane pitot tube striping.

Next project: I'm going to get in on the Millenium Hornet seeing as no one else has jumped in on Uncle Ricks contest.
