"A good kit that was easy to build"
crawfordwilson3 (Durham, NC)
This was not a bad kit. it was fairly easy to build. I was not too pleased with the raised panel lines, which I tried to remove with sanding. My attempt at re-scribing was not the best. it did need a decent amount of filler and eventual sanding. The directions were OK and simple to follow. I have just ordered the Hasegawa Starfighter, so i will see how much they differ. I would recommend the kit if you dont mind raised panel lines on your kit, otherwise, go for a kit which already has the characteristics you desire.

"Easy Starfighter"
kajoe55 (Oklahoma)
As others have mentioned, this is a good kit for the price. The fit is pretty good overall, but the instructions are not detailed so be prepared for it. Also, the painting guide is not the best either. So, like all good modelers do your research. The wings of most US 104's are painted white. Other references, if you want to model an air defender F-104, have the jet painted with the outboard side of the fuel tanks and tail surface orange. This kit is also a challenge to properly duplicate the colors of the tail empennage. Steel, titanium, aluminum, smoke, etc. were tried, but in my effort, with little success in matching the color variation. The kit builds into a beautiful representation of the jet so I recommend it for those who like the man in the missile. Have fun and enjoy.

 
"F-104G"

Though this kit looks like it is a re-issue of the older F-104 Kit,just with new decals and boxart, It still remains a very nice model.The detail is good and I experienced no fit problems.The decal sheet is good with markings for two aircraft, one Canadian and one USAF.I used the decal sheet from the Testors F-104 Kit on mine to depict an F-104C. The kit has very detailed landing gear and may built with the cannon bay open and speed brakes deployed. Again a very nice model from Revell at a very low price.Highly Recommended.

 
"Nice kit"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
Revell are not always the easiest kits to build. It is not that they are not simple, it is just that the require a little extra effort (mainly plastic putty and sanding) to achieve a realistic result. Having said this, I was pleasantly surprised with this kit. A little over flash on the sprues, after clean up the parts fit together well, and the detail was good. The seams still needed a little attention in order to hide them, but for the price this kit was good value for money as most Recall kits are. I achieved a realistic result with a lot less effort than other Revell kits.
