Lockheed XF-104 Starfighter, Lindberg, 1/48
« on: December 04, 2018, 03:14:04 PM »
Hello mates, :-salut

Here is the Lindberg's F-104 Starfighter named "Nato Fighter" in the 1960s.
The box that I got when I was a teenager with the artwork by Ray Gaedke. :


In the year 2000 I got a "motorized" version of the kit ibcluding an eletric motor reproducing the jet sound. Originally the kit had an ejection seat which operated downwards as on the real plane.
This box is dated 1965 :


As the kit represents no standard F-104G Starfighter but being near of a prototype I decided to convert it into one of the two XF-104 Starfighter. The task was to modify the air intakes of the jet engine and to move forward the nose undercarriage :
