Hi again, 

Here are some pictures of my diorama „Flyout F-104G MFG2, family day“. The aircraft was one of 4 making a farewell-tour through the US in 1986. See special markings at the tail.
The model is the Italeri kit with all add-ones from Eduard, a resin bang-seat, engine-trolley, M61 Vulcan and pitot from Master and 3 figures. Helmet of Pilot hollowed out Tamiya F-4 Pilot head. The post-tank is an adapted F-86 tank. Decals came from DACO. Several 100 to apply The explanation plates, the barriers and route warning bands and gun-base scratchbuild.The baseplate is from IKEA and the airfield is 1000 sandpaper. Brake blocks from Tamiya F-16. The J-79 Engine is the base engine of the kit with all accessories and piping/ cabling scratchbuild. It took 3 months to complete only the engine.
The whole model and diorama took 1 year to complete. The book „Uncovering of the F-104 Starfighter“ from Danny Coremans was my bible for the build. Thanks for looking.

A clear 10 on the wow-scale. Everything looks great, the paintjob, the detailing, the interior, chapeau, you nailed it. I have to get me a F-104 once, I was tempted several times, but haven't bought one. Such a consequent no-frill design, with only minimal additions to the engine, to form a plane out of it.

Cheers Rob

Hi Rob, the Italeri-Kit has its shortcomings but builds into a beautiful model even without aftermarket. It perfectly captures the sleek look. Just give it a try. The F-104 is one of my favorite planes! 
I‘ve also build a bare-metal one and have the 2-seater in my stash.

The only one I ever built was the old Revell  Nam. Among bird back in the stone ages......harv

I‘ve build this one and the Hasegawa too when I was young 40 years ago. Build in 2 days and painted with brush and slivering decals... But I liked it at that time! 

Do you have a picture of yours?
