Completed Builds

Recommended Posts

Here is my 1/48 Eduard Fishbed (PFM Profipak).

Completely OOB, using the PE for the instrument panels, and Tamiya acrylic paints. Egyptian AF scheme from the 70s.

Cutting it close on this one. I was hoping to get a Mig-21 built during this group build as well but I'll have to settle for a second Starfighter instead.

Hasegawa 1/48 F-104D/TF-104G kit done up as a Starfighters Inc. CF-104D. Hasegawa decals along with FineMolds metal pitot probe, Hypersonic Models resin narrow tires, Aires exhaust, aftermarket ejection seats as well as some DACO update set parts.

I decided to keep the build clean looking as the real jet is kept very clean. The Future gloss coat was a bit too shiny so I toned it down with a top coat mixture of 50/50 Micro Gloss/Micro Satin. This cuts down the toy look of the finished kit.

Overall, nice kit. Lots of excellent details (like the ladder, engine and tail dolley) and tons of decal options, but a mediocre cockpit. If I can pick up another for cheap I will definitely get some aftermarket decals and build that NASA bird.

Hello StarFishers!

I apologize for not being available to see the GB through to the end, some serious work issues got in the way for a while. But I am here to make good on the final prizes for all the modelers who completed builds here. I will think how best to provide a worthy conclusion for all your hard work, there are some very nice examples of F-104's and Mig-21's on display!

Thanks Neo!

 

I tried to hang in there, work and OTG work sites killed it for me.

 

Hopefully I can get back in the saddle and move forward!
