Hasegawa's 1/48 scale F-104G Starfighter is available online
This is the
special 2-plane box edition of the 1/72 Hasegawa F-104 and TF-104 kits
featuring decals printed by Cartograf in Italy.
were built with minimal modifications, most of which being limited to
the cockpit and closing of the undercarriage doors which were obviously
meant to be left open. The model was finished in Tamiya and Gunze
acrylics for the white and blue, and Alclad II for the NMF. Both
aircrafts were sanded down to 8000grit wet and polished with Tamiya
polishing compound – great stuff, I must admit!
This model was built as a gift for a buddy of mine, who just graduated
with a bachelors in Aerospace Engineering a year ahead of me. Special
thanks go to Mr. Rick Svetkoff and his generosity in obtaining the
‘Starfighters’ patch for the display base.
