Italeri 1/32 F-104G HAF S/N32715
By Spyros Michos
Here's my latest work, Italeri's 1/32 kit of the F-104G Starfighter. The model depicts an aircraft of the Hellenic Air Force with the S/N 32715 which was one of the decal options offered by the kit. Photos of the particular plane show it with heavily chipped wingtip tanks. A few aftermarket accessories were used including CMK's resin cockpit, Eduard's resin wheels and PE gun bay and BestFong FOD intake covers. The model was painted with a combination of Hataka, Mig Ammo and Alclad paints. Weathering was done with the use of Ammo and AK Interactive weathering products as well as oils (a first for me).
Despite its minor shortcomings Italeri's Starfighter was fun and enjoyable to build and in the end you will get a large and wonderful replica of this iconic aircraft. Can't wait for the two seater to be released!
