    Here is my latest, however not my greatest. Had this repaint of Luigi Saso's F-104g
    laying around, and built it for the Tiger Meet contest that never happened.
    The model itself is a pretty rough way of design. I did scratchbuild the landing
    gear and an actual exhaust.

    Nice work Texman.

    I was thinking of using that model as the basis for my NF-104 redesign, but ended up going with Kancho's design. But I do plan to use this design for some of my future repaints.

    Makes a good looking model.
