F-104G for Turbine

(Ducted Fan also available)

F-104G finished equipped with standard landing gear, gear doors, wheels & brakes, TOP GUN pilot etc. Metal finish is SOLARTRIM chrome.
 

Despite its tiny wings, the F-104G Starfighter  is remarkably easy to fly. The big size and the modified airfoil give this spectacular model an unprecedented stability and realism. Large flaps shorten take-offs and provide slow, stable landings. A model that will generate quite some interest at your flying field!

The nose section and the tiptanks (which are also included in the kit) are easily removable for transport. The length of the main section is thus reduced to 1550 mm, so the model will fit in most cars.

A rudder installation kit is available separately (required in the US by AMA).

 
Tiptanks are included in the kit
