This is a kit from Freedom Models. I cannot post a photo of the box because my friend Dominique Jadoul have it; the box contained an F-104 and a TF-104; we took both one kit...
Decos are for US 104 only; but I will build a Belgian one: one of the "Slivers" demo team
See here how those two pilots were absolutely crazy:

Anyway, to build one of their aircrafts some modifications will be needed.
First; the decals: I will use the DACO 1/144 decal sheet for BAF 104G.
What concerns the kit: For a "Slivers", I need the pylons on the wings end. Those pylon doesn't exist; the external reservoirs are immediately fixed on the wings. So, I have first to reduce the wing plots; then to create the pylons. My idea: to use halves missiles (BAF never had missiles on the lower part of the fuselage) - photos 2 to 4.
Then, not fixing anything under the wings, I need to sand the gaps and, next phase, to fill with putty. Putty will also be needed for the pylons...

No.1:
Never hear of this producer, egg edition of Starfighter look so interesting!!

Freedom realised also an F-20 Tigershark at 1/48th scale (two in fact: monoplace and biplace)

modellius:
Interesting one
