The F-104 G/S Starfighter®, in its multiple variants, was used by the U.S. and more than a dozen other NATO countries as a supersonic interceptor. This comprehensive, superbly detailed 1/32 scale model includes parts to build either the F-104 G or S version, and two large decal sheets include markings for 10 different variations, including the rare and often sought-after German Navy ('Marine') F-104.
Among the more than 300 parts comprising this amazing kit is a weapons arsenal which includes AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles as well as AIM-7 Sparrow missiles, plus a precisely molded GE 'Vulcan' 20 mm cannon in its gun bay, which includes positionable bay doors. Also included is a removable tail section that offers access to a remarkably detailed J-79 GE engine. Both the tail and engine include their own maintenance stands, adding an even higher level of realism to the build. Cockpit details include a photo-etched instrument panel and consoles. An accurate electronics bay, circuit breaker panels, both types of F-104 ejection seats, and a removable nose cone further enhance the supreme level of detailing. Exterior features include fully engraved panel lines, boarding ladder, and positionable flight controls and wing flaps. The kit's under-wing and wingtip fuel tanks bring the aircraft's intimidating silhouette to life. A 24-page Photographic Reference Manual (PRM) and a 44-page instruction sheet with color profiles will help guide you to build one of the most accurate replicas ever produced of this historic aircraft.
