“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.

“Building the Italeri CF-104” Reaches First Draft!

After a protracted development period, interrupted by a major relocation and associated resettling, I’m pleased to report that our next title, Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale, by Chuck Sawyer, has now reached the first draft stage. Phew!

Currently at 273 pages and counting, not only does it include Chuck’s fantastic build, but also tutorials on creating a gloss black base for natural metal finishes, getting the best out of HGW’s Wet Transfer decals, and a whopping 65-page walkaround of the CF-104 that currently resides at The Military Museum in Calgary Alberta, Canada.

The book now enters its final development phase, and will be tweaked and polished over the next couple of weeks or so, with a tentative aim of releasing it at the end of the month.
