1/48 - Lockheed (T)F-104G/J/DJ/S-ASA-M Starfighter by Kinetic - released - F-104C in September 2021


Recommended Posts

Me: I don't want an 1/48 Starfighter.

Me: checking this thread.

Me: Which one to choose?

Weird, huh? Any chance for a SEA camo F-104C or an F-104B? The double seater with a single piece canopy?

It'll be a genuine F-104S!  😋 

Just still to modify the box art and they've answered me this will be done.

Nice as serious work from the Kinetic team. Thank you guys.

New 1/48 scale F-104S Starfighter parts ready to test...

The air intakes are the key difference between S and other variants. Check the air intakes parts with Panel Liner Wash to a better view of the details.

A JBG-34 fighter-bomber from the last period (lizzard scheme) with the original interceptor ventral double Sidewinder rails system... Looks like the undocumented Kitty Hawk usual box art...

Hasegawa's kit is really nice. Nothing perfect, just regular kit, as usually Hasegawa does. But Kinetic? I believe they make better details, but what about fitting problems? For Hasegawa there is still amazing DACO upgrading set, nor for Kinetic.

by the time you buy all that DACO stuff to make the Hasegawa sorta right, you could literally buy two of these kits and spend half the time. I gonna wait for the F104c and get rid of two Hasegawa kits.

wonder which grey they gave on the color chart for the ASA-M version

I have the kit in hand.  They give Mig-211 FS36270.  To be fair, the real color is supposedly FS36280, which almost no one makes, and most people use 36270 anyway.

 

For weapons, the kit only includes AIM-9Bs and AIM-7s, but unfortunately not any AIM-9Ls.

And I was satisfied with the old Monogram 1/48 F-104C/G.  😎

but also kinda hard to lay your hand on. I have two Hasegawa F104c kits and each time I look at them I just put them back up. Looks like something out of the seventies. That kit needs more filler than the fairway of the local golf course!

Dave;

I used to fly out of Da Nang on choppers. We always hooked up right in front of the F104's, and they were almost always clean. Perhaps a couple missiles. Probably the best job in country! They spent more time working on their sun tans and reading the Stars & Stripes in chase lounge chairs than anything else. In all the time I was around them, I saw two fly out! No wonder it took an act of congress to get that position. Probably did this a dozen times right in front of them. Yet on the other runways a Phantom was in the arming pit constantly (or A6). Amazed me at how fast the could get up and outta sight.

Gary, I’m assuming that you’re talking about the F-104C, which hasn’t been released.  My comment was for the F-104S boxing.

that's where I was headed. Looks like a great kit; by the way. With the new Tamiya Phantom and the F104c looming; I can see me living on popcorn till October! Now if we could just get ZM back into the business
