“Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale” is Now Available!

I’m pleased to announce that our latest title, Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale by Chuck Sawyer, is now available!

In this 326-page eBook, Chuck Sawyer builds the Italeri 1/32 F-104G Starfighter kit as a Canadian CF-104, combining it with a modest selection of aftermarket products to produce a stunning model. Along the way, Chuck treats us to tutorials on obtaining a flawless gloss finish, getting the best out of the Alclad range of metallic paints, and how to apply HGW’s tricky Wet Transfer decals.

Along with kit reviews by Dave Williams and our usual array of Appendices, we’ve also included a 65-page walkaround by Gord McTaggart, of the CF-104 that currently resides at The Military Museum in Calgary Alberta, Canada.

Chuck’s build is highly instructive, and will be invaluable to anybody wishing to build the Italeri Starfighter, irrespective of the particular variant they’re building.

And as with all our books, should any updates be required, anyone who purchased a prior version gets lifetime free access to all subsequent updated versions! All new purchasers will of course receive the updated version automatically.

Note: all our prices are in Australian dollars.

  1. During the weekend I had a quick view of Chuck’s e-book on my beloved One-O-Four.
    This is by far the most extensive and detailed F-104 build I have ever seen and as I have several (T)F104’s of Italeri stashed away for future builds I know now what to check and correct. I was also amazed about the use of HGW rivets on a natural metal zipper and will certainly give it a try when I start my build of FX-87, the F-104 Capt. “Susse” Jacobs was killed in on 2 september 1968 when performing his “roll-touch-roll” for the French television series “les chevaliers du ciel” (the knights of the sky for those not familiar with the French language). It will be a tribute to a fine Belgian F-104 pilot. Chuck’s CF-104 would be a show stopper in my zipper room, in combination with my CF-104 painting and my Canadian CF-104 flight helmets …

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Patrick! I’m glad you liked the book, and I wish you the best of luck with your own build!
