Count me in here!
Looking good so far!

Bad thing with all the lost parts but anyhow keep up the good work!

Wow, amazing work so far... that seat and all that harnessing is the stuff of my nightmares!

48-scale an all different world - provided the model is not an upscaled 72 like some Zvezda kits... 😄

I hope you are enjoying this as much as I did, the seat definitely looks like it! You really worked out all those beautiful details with the wash & paint-job 👍

Excellent work so far. I have Eduard's Bundesfighter version of the F-104 and I am looking forward to getting it on my bench. I feel bad for the pilot of that machine as he has to strap himself into the ejection seat with a cargo net. ?

Uh-hah-ho - this is going somewhere! 🙂

Nice job on all the colors & I see you got them pesky ejector pin holes smoothened up better than I have 😄

Thank you, Clifford! I was afraid to even start, it never turned to my liking before. Guess I got lucky this time! Not visible in the photo yet: some specks of bronze and an oil wash. Will come in th final photos.
In the meantime, I turned to the landing gear, which might still see a wash of paint remover.

BTW, love your Tornado, looks awesome

Thank you Spanjaard. Getting final oils in place and hope to share final photos soon. This one took its time.

Thank you for the like on the Tornado Palo, I am betting this 104 is going to be a stunner.
