Mark I 1/144 F-104 Starfighter Weapon Set
By Matt Bittner
To go along with their releases of early F-104 Starfighters, Mark I has released this Weapon Set that can be used with multiple types of F-104 Starfighters. This set is all in resin and consists of the following:
- Mk.28 (B-28) Atomic bomb
- Orpheus recce pod
- SUU-21 bomb dispenser
- Mk.83 1000lb bomb (x2)
- Mk.82 500lb bomb (x2)
- BL755 bomb (x2)
- AS-34 Kormoran (x2)
- Pylon for AS-34 (x2)
- LAU-3A rocket pod (x2)
The instructons are very informative, not only giving you the colors of everything in this set, but also how the stores are arranged on the aircraft. This includes what parts to use from the kit to complete the weapons arrangement. The only thing possibly missing would be decals for markings of these weapons.
If the F-104 you want to build flew with any of the ordnance contained within this set, then this set is a must. Everything is very nicely molded and will look great when added to your model.
While I would like to thank Kits-Shop for the review kit, unfortunately they went out of business.
