Hi All, Here is my second all metal skin Starfighter, this version is from Dagnang AB in Vietnam 1968. Once again each panel is hand cut from aluminum sheets. This was my first attempt at a real metal skin aircraft, lots of experimenting on this one! I finished this model about 6 months ago.
The 1/48 F104 Starfighter wearing the Anniversary Scheme of the Italian Airforce by Hasegawa. Only half of the plane was painted with the Cat-and-Mice scheme retaining the other half for its camo scheme. The model relatively EASY to build. The challenge was aligning the decals vis-a-vis the fuselage and the tail fin. My bench was literally soaking wet to keep those decals wet enough for easy adjustment. Happy New Year to all!
