Holger Kranich @ Brandon: This kit dont comes with USAF markings. The other issue of this kit is "americanized"
@ Stefan: There are many nice markings on the sheet but i´ll stick to the "Marineflieger"!
Peter Neyens Still waiting, and waiting, and waiting for the 1/32 Italeri F-104G ...

Peter Neyens Hi Holger. I will definitly make a regular Belgian Air Force scheme. And maybe an Italian F-104S in the latest all grey scheme. I don't understand why Italeri does not include these decals (as far as I know). Fortunately I have them already in my stash. I visited Grosseto air base a few times around 2004 when they were still operating the F-104S. That 's where my profile photo was taken. Unforgettable memories ! If I would make a German starfighter, it would be a Marineflieger. I always liked them. I have a signed painting of the Vikings flying over the Neuschwanstein castle.
you have a signed painting of the vikings? Cool!
The belgian 104´s look absolute cool but i would make a Marineflieger when i finally have the kit in my hands! Do you have some pix from your visit of Grosseto Air Base?

Peter Neyens No I didn't have a decent photocamera at the time. I got this photo from someone else. But I did have a Sony digital videocamera and I recorded about 2 hrs of video. Unfortunately, I tried to copy it to my pc, but Windows doesn't recognize the format and it doesn't play. I tried to find out how to do it, but I couldn't find a conversion program yet that could fix it. Digital doesn't always make it easier ...
