Help Needed with F-104C decals

Gentleman I picked up Hasegawa's F-104 C,

Nice kit , however decals are old, yellowish and most likely cracked up. I am not much of a jet guy and have no idea what is presently available in terms of decals. What are my options?

I really like the metal looks of classic sixties fighters.Like these ones below.

Victory Productions has a couple sheets for early Starfighters.

There's one with whitewall tires even. 

If the kit had been a G, you could have built an RCAF one. Lots of options there.

Thank You Carl, I like the China Lake example. So I guess I do need an early set of wheels, nozzle, then delete the arresting hook and trim the stabilizers on fuel tanks. Is that all for early model Starf. ?

My dad told me they were in the underground tunnels that the Army had dug into the island. It was sort of like Gibraltar. Everyone was garrisonned underground due to the occasional shelling.  I don't think he saw any of the 104s but I'll ask him next time. 

One of the things that they did on the island to pass time was there was some sort of factory that made tank shaped liquor bottles. You could only get them on the island. There's one at my parents' house. It looks like an M48 with really soft details.
