All begin from this drawing found in internet:



This drawing probably was a study for a F-104's develeopment made in TAIWAN.  :wub:

This is the actual stage of the conversion:

The problem is of to find a suitable fairing for the two engines. I'm looking around to find something of good
I will look in the 1/32 spare parts to find a underwing tank of the right size.

What shape are the intakes supposed to be? The thing that immediately occured to me was 1/144th Concorde intakes with the central splitter plate removed....

At this moment I have not decided anything.
One option was to use the same air intakes of the Starfighter for to have a line of continuity.
However, first I have to see how to do the engine fairings. Then I see the rest.

Food for thought, but why not use a couple of 1/72 B-1 engine pods, remove the radar diverter splitters & rework the back end around a 48th scale burner can?

Unfortunately I have not here at home a box of a B-1 in 1/72.
The idea is to make the model with what I have here.

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
