    F-104G 1/48 Hasegawa H.A.F....

    Post  Yannis Thomas on Wed Nov 28, 2012 3:07 pm

    Hi guys.

    Here is one of my latest jobs. It's the well known Hasegawa 1/48 F-104G Starfighter in Hellenic Air force's service in 1982. It is an ex-RNAF plane that came to Greece in May 1982 and retained this camo for a couple of months, only.


    I used Aires cockpit and exhaust nozzle, CMK electronic,wheel engine and cannon bays, Quick boost pitot, CMK FOD covers and Icarus Productions decals. Also, the RBF are from Eduard. I painted the model with Gunze acrylics and Xtracolor Matt varnish. Finaly, the Jabo G34 logo on both sides (tail fin and rear fuselage) is home made.


    I hope you like it! Smile


























    Here it is at SMW, Telford 2012.









    thanks a lot for your time!

    Yannis
