PostSubject: REVIEW: Hobby Master HA1054 CAF Lockheed CF-104D Starfighter, 1 CAG, CFB Baden-Soellingen, West Germany   Sun Jul 16 2017, 00:27

November 10, 2012


Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series
HA1054
Lockheed CF-104D Starfighter
Canadian Armed Forces "104650"
1 Canadian Air Group (CAG), CFB Baden-Soellingen, West Germany.
Limited 1,000 Units

Recently added to the collection.

In addition to 200 Single Seat CF-104s built by Canadair in Montreal, the RCAF acquired 38 "Duals" built by Lockheed in the United States. Canadian Starfighters entered service in 1961 with Eight Canadian Squadrons based in Germany and France in the Nuclear Strike and Reconnaissance roles as part of the Nation's commitment to NATO. Eventually under the socialist Trudeau government the CF-104s were reduced to just three squadrons and converted to the conventional attack role in 1972. A role they fulfilled until replaced by the CF-18 Hornet in 1986.

The model by Hobby Master is a good looking one. The finish is a little darker and a bit shinier than the single seat version also produced by HM (although all Camoflauge paint jobs varied somewhat over time).

Would like to see a solid green version in the future.
