Revell 1/144 - F-104 Starfighter - Italian Ferrari - Complete
Here's a Ferrari that not many people if any are able to own, a red hot Italian F-104 Ferrari Starfighter. This beauty ain't your low-viz tactical jet figther.
Second Revell of Germany 1/144 F-104 G Starfighter built and not the last.
If anyone knows of a 1/144 or N-gauge Ferrari supercar, it would be great to be able to get so i can make a little dio, an Enzo would be awesome to have.
Very nice decals from Airfix, which surprised as so much negative press ive read. Cavallino Rampante is what the black stallion is it means "prancing horse"
This is the best photo that show the correct colour of the Ferrari Starfigther, blood red.
Note, is missing the black line marking that goes around the fuselage in front of the tail, once i find a spare decal that can be used i will add.
All the reference ive seen seam to show 3 different designs for the black marking behind the cockpit.
Big jet with tiny wings, "Man in a Rocket"
Hoping that the undercarriage is a metal finish, not much detail on that.
Really love the sleekness of the jet, no wonder Ferrari gave it a custom paint job.
These 2 F-104s are the first completed builds of 2011, feels like it going to be a good year.
