F-104 Starfighter all metal skin


Recommended Posts

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.

Sweet! Very shiny! What kits did you use and what scale are they? Those will turn some heads wherever you take them. Thanks for sharing and congrats!

Hey Gil,

these are 1/32 scale Itialeri kits. They are ok, they lack detail so be prepared to do some scratch building.

thanks Gil!!

Great work Rick. That was a very ambitious project. It definitely paid off in the end. Can’t wait to see more of your work
