    Need pictures of a naked F-18 prototype

    That's ironic. That's exactly what paint I'll be using! 😁

    Thanks everybody! Fasteagle and GW. those help immensely. The picture of the one in the hangar has the graphite areas already painted chromate yellow, but it gives me a great idea of what the top looks like. How do you guys find these? I found bubkus when I did a search! Is it me, or does the aluminum areas seem to have a goldish tint to them?

    I originally tried that, but the only pictures were of the C. I'm looking for the prototype. The C pics will help a little bit, but most of the aluminum areas on the C were painted in chromate yellow.

    It was still a single-seater.

    I'm looking for any pictures of the unpainted #4 Hornet prototype. I've got the two pictures from the Great Book of Modern Warplanes, but my web searching has come up empty. I think I can recreate it from those pictures, but it would be nice to have some more. If anyone could point me in the right direction to find some, I'd be much obliged.

    Differences in 1/48 Monongram F-104C and G?

    I think I've seen some pictures of A's or C's. They have the narrower rudder.

    I totally forgot about Scalemates. Thanks for the link! Can I do a NASA jet from the C? Those are some nice markings.

    Great info! I'm not all that familiar with the details of the F-104, so let me ask this. If I'm building the Monogram F-104C, what areas would best be upgraded with either resin, PE, and/or scratchbuilding. This is going to be for an FSM article. I'm in a "competition" with another author. He's building the Hasegawa F-104C and we're going to compare results side by side. The premise is that the classic kits can still be built up to rival the more modern kits of the same subject. On the flip side, I get to build the HobbyBoss F8F Bearcat while he gets to bring the old Hawk up to modern standards.

    Fantastic. Thanks for the quick response.

    Got it. I'll pick up the Monogram C. I've known some manufacturers to simply change markings and call it a different variant without changing the plastic inside.
