Just a start on my favorite part of modeling! Pictured here are IAW Graphics decals only. The Freedom Models kit comes with lots of decals of their own. They ROCK!
Stay tuned as this super-silly Toon-model Starfighter story unfolds! :notworthy: :salute :oldguy :pilot

Get that stray hair... :frantic
I told you photobucket sucks...

That's about all the markings for the fin & rudder. The ship name on the tip-tank is a little more understated than I had hoped for.

I won't bore everyone to death with the Blow-by-blow on General Eddie's jet markings. The Kit decals are excellent! There are LOTS of decals!! Good opacity, fine, thin, carrier film and they snuggle right down with a coating of Solvaset. Decals are my favorite stage of the build. It's when the story of the model starts to come to life.

A BIG "thank you" to Mike for alerting me to the Sprue Brothers Deal Of The Day when this model kit went on sale.
See!?! :yipee It's not just ME! :rotf I had help! :gogo
Thanks for looking in!

Link to the actual F-104 the Toon single seat kit markings are based on.

The Hat in Ring 94th Aero squadron marking is on General Eddie's helmet.
When you are detached to fly with a hosting outfit it is traditional to bring your lucky, sweat-stained, flight suit, your own oxygen mask, helmet and golden jock-strap.

One more decal to apply to General Eddie's stubby speedster! Burner can & wheels, and She'll be ready to attend Nordic-Con later this month!

Der Baron's Red Rocket progresses as well!
I did promise not to bore you every time another decal went on. The IAW (Home-made)decal markings work really well.
Thanks for looking in!
