“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 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale

I’m pleased to announce that our next title will be Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale, by Chuck Sawyer. Those of you who are familiar with Chuck’s work, or purchased his previous KLP book, Building the Special Hobby Tempest Mk V in 1/32 Scale, will know what to expect from this book: a forensic examination of the kit, combined with clear and detailed notes on how to get the best out of it.

Along with Chuck’s tremendous build, the book will also include a walkaround, by Gord McTaggart, of the CF-104 that currently resides at The Military Museum in Calgary Alberta, Canada. This comprises more than 100 photos! Our usual appendices featuring aftermarket and reference items will also make their customary appearance.

The book is in the initial stages of development, but we’re hoping to be able to release it by the end of January. Stay tuned for more information as it comes to hand! The best way to do this is to subscribe to our blog, so that you’ll be notified by email whenever there’s a new post:
