This set adds some nice details to the basic kit part. Keep in mind though, that usually only the hinging aft hatch was opened for day-to-day maintenance / checks. Only for more extensive maintenace was the front hatch removed.

These photos give a bit of insight how the compartment looks with the M61A1 gun removed:

As can be seen, the compartment will need some wiring added as well. If you are planning to add this detail to the bay itself, I'd recommend putting in the Master barrel set for the M61A1 Vulcan gun too!

 

The Eduard instructions.

 

There were no differences in the gun compartments between the F-104A, C and G that I'm aware of, so this set can also be used for Italeri's F-104G.

 

Highly Recommended

 

I'd like to thank Eduard for providing the review sample.
