Lockheed TF-104G Starfighter
Kit: The TF-104G-Kit from Revell is based on the normal F-104G, there are only new parts for the cockpit added.
Building this kit has made fun, all parts fit well. Only within the range of the intakes some putty was required. I decided to open the air-brakes besides the fuselage and the box of the drag parachute (with parts from Eduard).
I painted the bird in the standard camouflage of theGerman Starfighters. I only used parts of the decal-sheet because I wanted to represent a machine of the Jagdgeschwader 74 "Mölders" (fighter wing 74), and so the wing-badge on the tail and the tactical numbers besides the cockpit comes from another kit. I´m not sure if exactly THIS machine was part of the fighter wing 74, but I hope it :)
Some decals unfortunately have a litte bit of silvering, and little details of the model are incorrect, maybe I change this sometimes. Hope you´ll like it nevertheless,
