F-104G Starfighter "Marineflieger"

Recommended Posts

This is the Hasegawa 1/48 F-104G Starfighter "MarineFlieger" kit with Eduard Zoom PE for the cockpit.

I completed this bird recently for a local forum group build and wanted to share the pictures here too. For more information on my build journey, you can visit my posts in another forum here.

The aircraft is painted using Gunze lacquers; pinwash done with Tamiya German Grey and the oil stains on the wings and other places done with Tamiya Weathering Master (Set D I think).

Pictures are taken with my iPhone.

Comments are welcome.

I had problems with some of the decals (can't seem to be able to get rid of the tiny bubbles!) and even managed to tear one decal out after 2 successive coats of clear.

I know I need to sand the tires a little bit to simulate "weight" of the aircraft, but choose not to do this before my local meet.. don't jinx me! :whistle:

Thanks for reading.

Excellent work! Could easily be mistaken for a 1/32 model with the attention to detail.

Funny that you did glue the nose the wrong way, how is that? or can you remove the nose to showthe radar?

The paint work is great, but that nose is a real big mistake.

And why did nobody mentioned that before, even in the building process?

Beejee my man you are right, it is wrong! Doh!

Can't do much to correct this now as I have started on something else. Guess I would have to do much better on my next model.

Thanks for pointing that out sir.
