Italeri 1/32 F-104S
By Paolo Maglio
I started this kit in the second half of December 2013 and finished it during last weekend with the new Zotz decals. Main problem with this kit is one of the half fuselage come with much heavier panel lines than the other half, a couple of coats of primer was used to make panel lines to look the same depth. I have added all the currently available aftermarket bits: exhaust from Aires (F-4), resin Martin Backer seat, Master pitot and Vulcan gun and the very nice SUU-21A pod from Videoaviation, a standard fitting for all Italian F-104 bombers. Practice Mk.82 bombs come from the Trumpeter F-105 kit.
