Turkish Remembrance of Ataturk and Youth Day for Turkey


This is my 1/48 Hasegawa TF-104G Starfighter in Turkish markings.  The fighter belongs to 191. Squadron. It participated in the Tigermeet in 1991.

It has Norm 72 camouflage; I used Revell 77 as grey and 65 for green.  Model Master metalizer aluminium was applied underside the plane. The stencils were out of box since GAF plane used them, thus Turkish Starfighter applied.  The only adding was Finemold pitot tube.

For the cockpit I utilized Tamiya tape to simulate harness. It took two months to complete it.
