These are pictures of a CF-104, using hasegawa F-104G with Verlinden details and Leading Edge decals (including resin parts for CF conversion). Verlinden details are well done and extremely accurate. Cockpit bay fit perfectly in the fuselage without spend hours of sanding.

Leading Edge Models decals are as usual fine, but be aware you will need to use a lot of soft decal solution to soften them on the surface. I cut in three pieces the black and white checkerworks, I found it easier to put them in correct position that way.

Tamiya semi gloss black (X-18) paint were used and nearly no weathering on this model, except in the cockpit and landing gears.
Hope you will enjoy it.
