Hi guy's,

 

finally, here's my Italeri F-104G Starfighter, depicting a machine from the Kleine Brogel based 23" "Devils" Squadron. This particular machine participated at the Tactical Air Meet in 1978 held at RAF Wildenrath, Germany. 

 

Like you all know this was not an easy build. Lot's of bad thing's happend during this build, especially regarding the DACO paint which was a real bad experience. Never less, all went finally well, and here's the result.

This helmet is the HGU-26/P with MBU-5/P oxygen mask. This type of helmet was used during the whole Starfighter operational periode in the Belgian Air Force and others. Still i need two J-bayonets to get this helmet accurate. The two receivers are configured for J-bayonets instead of T- bayonets like on this helmet.

Worth all the hassle Danny as that is a very nice finish and a nice display.

At the end, indeed, it's not so bad at all. Thank's mate for the nice comment.:thumbsup2:

Nice presentation Danny, the best end of a project is if the problems occuring through the building phase are not noticeable on the finished thing.

Chapeau, you nailed it.

Cheers Rob

Thank's rob.:thumbsup2: there are imperfections but gladly they are down-sized to a minimum.
