    Hasegawa F-104G 1/48

    Post  danchircop on Mon Mar 01, 2010 11:39 pm

    Hi everyone,
    I've finally found some time to post a couple of pics. The model is quite detailed, typical from Hasegawa, so it will be an OOB build.

    [i]

    Initial stages of the cockpit.





    The cockpit in place.



    Latest stage: Fuselage is nearing completion. On the whole the kit has a great fit and only a little bit of filling is needed.


    Comments and criticism welcome.

    Regards
    Daniel

    Beautiful work Daniel. Just some very light drybrush on the side consoles in the pit. Otherwise great.

    Thanks Brian. Actually I did dry brush the side panels. According to references all knobs and switches are black, so I was afraid to overdo it with the drybrushing, but I agree with you maybe it's still too subtle.

    But the panels are nicely detailed and it cannot show. So either dry brush them again this time a bit more or else just paint the consoles a lighter grey and pick off the knobs with black if you don;t wish to dry brush.

    i love the F105 in German markings. After all, everything looks great in German markings.

    I will do this one in Italian markings. I think they were the best looking F-104s. Although I still intend to build another one in German markings, which will definitely be in German navy markings.

    Adrian if you want to build one go for the Hasegawa. Overall it's a great kit with a lovely fit Wink .

    Nice choice! Cool
    My favorites are Italian F104's in their light ghost gray camo. That would by my first choice, followed by one in german navy blue/gray with white undersides and orange tanks Laughing Laughing

    but i think those italian F104's are S versions, not G? scratch Idea

    The hasegawa model is the PT20 F-104G 'Nato Fighter'. The german markings has got a special nato livery.
    I don't know which Revell kit is equivalent to Hasegawa's. The pics of the sprues Marco posted definitely look similar to the one I have so if you manage to find the revell one go for it. It will definitely be much cheaper.
