    Like the F-4, the 105 has a special place in my heart. When I was younger, I built many aircraft models and I recall a 1:72 scale Matchbox kit for the F-104. Though small, it was a well made kit and the finished product looked quite good. I had wanted to paint it to match a German variant complete with black and yellow tiger stripes along the entire fuselage, but ended up doing the Canadian RCAF markings instead. I never did any larger scale modelling of the Starfighter, I would have liked a 1:32 or 1:24 scale model of one and its beautiful missile-like body.

    Thanks for this article
