Bill Cross shares his built-up (T)F-104G trainer from Marineflieger Geschwader 1 in 1/32nd scale built (more of less) out-of-the-box using the Italeri kit.

Hi Bill,

I had to drop-in and say great work, as I'm building a different version and taking a different approach, still with Italeri's kit (mine's the F-104C). I feel the pain and pleasure, and admire the lovely finish you got.
Have a great day,
Steve.

Thanks, Steve, the kit builds up very nicely, it just requires a lot of patience and a sound-proof room to keep the swearing from attracting neighbors or frightening passersby.
