Very interesting!! I'm too am busy with a couple of 104s. But the sheer amount of extra stencils I have purchased via the Dutch Starfighter foundation are killing me. Great work so far Eric!! Definitely following off course!

Following, since im building two Starfighters at the same time. One will be a Spanish Air Force plane and the other will be probably a Greek one, since i would like to build a Belgium plane but dont have any decals for it

Thx guys.
Erik, I must say I'm dreading the decal phase. I build the 1/32 Italeri F-104G a couple of years ago so I know all about the number of decals. And now I have to do it twice.
Jose, Daco has some beautiful decals to build a lot of Belgian F-104's :)

Some really cool work here - excellent pit, a respect-inspiring wing-riveting job and a really great looking camo! Looking forward to the next steps

Thx Jose and Slavo.
Next up is some more detail painting, especially the different color variations on the bare metal TF-104G. Luckily the DACO manual provides detailed painting guides for this. Finding the right metal tones will be a challenge for me. I'm going to use MRP and Mr Color Super Metallic paints.

I used MRP metals on my F-104 (all metals used there) - very nice to work with, Chrome somewhat more difficult, particularly in combination with oil-washes.
