I don't know about it being a widow maker, but it has the potential to be a marriage breaker[sm=49_49.gif]

The F-104 is a nice plane! Here`s mine from Jetwelt Germany. Also in scale 1:5. First i had a Jetcat 160 SE in it, and it was enough. Later i put a Jetcat P 200, and that was more than enough!!!

Hi Jeff

We look fwd to seeing you on the 8th! Kbay is a little busy now but I think the fiscal year ends in September so there should be a lul in the full scale stuff by then.

Better start saving now for that F-104G, my avonds will have some company now lol. My trailer is 6 X 12 so it should fit [&:] I hope the tail is plug in too..... (should have read more carefully looks like it will )I wonder how many Louis Vuitton bags I will have to buy the wife after this one lol.

Christian

Very nice Starfighter.

A nice project.
Anton fulfills the promised.
But it is out of my possibilities. The plane is bigger than my workshop.
It is a very big jump from 1/7 to 1/5, the Avonds 94 inch to Skymasters 131 inch.
Is it possible that in the future a smaller F-104G is constructed?
How the Phantom 1:7 3/4 and 1:9.5.

Regards
Manuel

Anton, that is a great choice of ARF kit, and I'm sure it will be spectacular in 1/5 scale

Any chance that Skymaster would consider offering ARF's covered in Flite Metal or a similar finish? Maybe you could train a couple of your staff to become experts in that finish. I'm sure that would be something that would interest several people.

Nice job Anton. Can't wait to see how it does with the thinner wings. Hopefully, this video will compliment the thread.
