Hasegawa 1/72 Lockheed F-104G Starfighter

Post by Seamus »

Evening all,

After a delay sourcing replacement decals, the next Century Series fighter is complete; Hasegawa's 1/72 Starfighter, finished as an F-104G of the German Navy using Xtradecal for the main markings and Astra decals for the myriad of stencils. The Xtradecals were out of register, which is especially disappointing when you pay for aftermarket, and some of the stencils have silvered a bit, which is more my own fault, so overall a frustrating result of many hours applying them all! I also added a Pavla seat, which I think is intended for earlier version, plus there's a few other niggles which annoy me. Pleased to have this mad aircraft on the shelf, but as ever I can only see the errors... Finished with Hataka Orange Line and Alclad for the metallic areas used as usual.

Happily its not my area of expertise, so I can ignore the minor niggles that I'd never have spotted alone, and appreciate the overall effect which is great.
