Hasegawa F-104N completed

Recommended Posts

Well, I finally finished a model this year. This is what I came up with.

 

More pic's in the "on the bench" forum.

 

Thank for looking. Comments more than welcome.

Looks great! Any suggestions for a reference on the differences between the N and G versions? (I have a 1/72 104G in the closet.)

Now you just need an XB-70 to go with it.

Actually, Bill finished the AMT XB-70 several years ago. Too bad the F-104 is 1/48 and the XB-70 is 1/72. Maybe he will post a photo of the XB-70 here. It looked fantastic also.

The F-104N was just an F-104G that was loaned back to NASA. There were 3 of them loaned to NASA. They were initially nmbered 011, 012, 013. The numbers were changed to 811, 812, 813. 813 crashed into the XB-70 on June 8, 1966.

 

The other two surviving N's were given the civilian registration numbers of N811NA, and N812NA.

A member of our club, Paul Love, completed another 104 in the same scheme for display in the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago. It was part of a display honoring Maj. Robert H. Lawrence, Jr. Check out Maj. Lawrence's story at; http://www.raahistory.com/military/airforce/lawrence/lawrence.htm
