  1. I would take two sets. One for the B and one for the C. Thomas
  2. You should also consider a partner in EU Europe. On Jan. 1st 2021 the UK is completely out of the EU. Not the best position for making business with Europe. I would suggest Aero Spezial or Shop of Phantoms from Andreas Klein of Airdoc as partners in the EU. Thomas
  3. Haven´t built it yet, good to know.
  4. Intake trunks are available. I have them, very nice. D-Mold
  5. On this picture posted on FB you see the issue very well IMO, when compared to the original.
  6. Raymond, I really appreciate that you come here and explain some of the the background of why things are as they are. Maybe you should consider some more publicity with the CAD´s here, before the tool cutting starts. Here are many, many more eyes who might see issues. I will get the TF-104G kit, because I believe that you put great efforts into it to get it right this time. A little bitter sweet taste stays, because the single seater remains with the shape issue. The reason behind you made clear. Maybe there will be a possibility to get F-104A/C fuselage parts for adapting it with
  7. I am not the best red line handler, the intake duct "bulge" on the fuselage ends too early on the Kinetic kit. r...
  8. Dear Raymond, I also really appreciate that you are coming here to defend your kit (your "baby") and I am also happy to hear, that you address the shape issue on the TF-104G and a coming F-104A/C. The shape issue might also caused a problem with wrong panel lines in the transition between fuselage to the rear wing connection. The rest of the kit looks superb, as some other people already mentioned. I cannot check the dimensions of the Kinetic kit, as I don´t have it. Generally, I really like you kits and I have some (CF-188, both AMX, Mirage 2000, Super Etendard, Sea Harr
  9. Thanks all! Seems, I could avoid the trouble with the wrong windscreen, if I would go with the Yak-28P interceptor from Hobbyboss. Thomas
  10. Raymond from Kinetic mentioned in the FB thread on the forthcoming release of the TF-104G kit as he was asked by a member if the fuselage shape issue will corrected, that it will happen. Unfortunately it is unclear, if also the single seater parts will be addressed. When you google Kinetic F-104 you will find some builds, where the shape issue pops out, like this one from Kitchecker: When you compare it to the original it is so obvious: And while researching the issue, I got the impression, that the Revell 1/72 has a similar issue with t
  11. Dave, my post is confusing. I mean the outside shape of the fuselage, where the intake ducts run. The pictures, although not the same angle shows the problem with the Kinetic kit. Thomas
  12. Hello all, title says it all, which is the better kit of the two regarding accuracy and options? Variant is secondary. Thanks, Thomas
