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

Can I do a NASA jet from the C? Those are some nice markings.

I assume you are talking about the white/blue/light blue scheme.
You could build it as F-104A N818NA which is now hanging in the Smithsonian.

There is also an F-104C (56-0934) in the markings of N820NA (56-0790) hanging at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. 820 started as an F-104A but was converted to an F-104G before it was painted in those markings, so technically it is wrong, but it does exist.

Thanks for sharing those pics of the F-104 at Edwards. They were a real blast from the past. My house was about a 1/4 mile from those planes. I used to walk out there all the time growing up.
