First USAF Starfighter

The first F-104C Starfighter have been completed ! This one from a period where the USAF were not shy about adding some colors to their paint schemes. Even among the colorful paint schemes in the late 50s the 479th TFW stod out with their four F-104 squadrons each painted in a different trim color. This depicted aircraft flew with the 434nd TFS which had red trim, which really is very pbvious from this renditions. Let me know how you like this one.

Phantom from the Tiger squadron

Time to yet again build the RAF/RN section. This time with a Phantom FGR.2 of No. 74 Squadron. Complete with both roaring tiger head and tiger stripes. The Spey power Phantoms differed from the US versions in more ways than what is readily visible, the entire intake section is wider and deeper, and the exhaust feathers used on the US versions is gone. But apart from that the good ol´ Spook does look like it´s suppose to, in fact it looks like a fighter is suppose to :) Click the link below to be taken to the 74.

Black Panther Intruder

The VA-section have been needing some new material, and i decided to do something about it: The latest addition to that section is this A-6E Intruder of VA-35 "Black Panthers" as it appeared while deployed aboard USS America (CVA-66) in 1972/73. USS America was stationed in the Gulf of Tonkin at the time, and the aircraft from the deployed CVW-8 were flying missions over Vietnam. It was only when working on this rendition i noticed how VA-35 cleverly have kept the tailcode in the green trim color. Let me know how you like this new Intruder rendition.
