Default 1/48 Hasegawa F-104C Starfighter

I figured I'd drag this out to work on it a little for a personal project. This is like one of my favorite fighters out there.

To me that represents a certain era of jet technology that came up with some beautiful sleek designs!

Okay, let's see more!

Like the Hunter, Sabre and other jets of the 50's and 60's, a classic design of it's time. Never, just never gets old.
Should be interesting to see how this turns out.

None of that mylar coating that had you pulling hair out at first though! Naw, something simple and easy for you? Like make a mold and cast it in bronze then triple nickel plating for a chrome finish followed by light acid etching for a varied panel effect! Yeah, that's what I expect from you!

I have a couple of options on how I want it to look. I can go with the stainless steel or with a more weathered look.

I kind of like this one here, nice and weathered. But, I do like chrome.

You could always go for something a bit more colorful.

IMHO there are a 'million' planes that can be weathered but only a handful that look like they should be, and were, "chrome"! That there is one of them and we know you can do "chrome"!

You can do a bit of weathering on a chrome version too. The area of the fuselage, near the exhaust nozzle, would look very cool with a heat discoloration "weathering" pattern.

Cool! Just bought a G model one and will be starting on it soon. Trying to find the right resin cockpit set before I start. This guy here did a fantastic job on his Marine version. A bit drab but I like the weathering; and will base my paint job on his.

Great plane.

There's something about the F-104 i just love , the simple clean lines and even when its setting on the ground it looks fast . Now i know today's fighter are better planes but in my eyes some of them look like a Bath Tub with wings.

In fact iam looking for one of the old Hasegawa 1/32 F-104 Starfighter does anybody know where i could fine one.

Mark.

Mark, check this out man.

I got a 32nd scale Revell "Ferrari" Starfighter off Fleabay for 6 bucks.
A huge model and just get some decals.

Have a look to see if there is one there.

Cheers,
Chris.
