Product description

Embark on a journey back to a pivotal era in U.S. Air Force (USAF) history with Caracal's latest†1/48 scale†decal set for the F-104 Starfighter, showcasing its less commonly celebrated but equally fascinating roles as a high-speed test aircraft, aerospace trainer, and an unmanned drone!

The F-104 Starfighter, with its distinctive slender fuselage and supersonic capabilities, was not only a frontline interceptor but also played a critical role in advancing aeronautical science and flight technologies during its service from the late 1950s through the early 1970s. The missions flown by these "Zippers" were crucial in the development of technologies that shaped the future of aviation and aerial combat, marking the F-104 as a versatile and invaluable asset beyond its combat duties.

Featuring seventeen (17) carefully selected and historically accurate marking options, this†1/48 scale†set highlights the F-104's involvement in experimental programs, high-speed testing, and its transition into a remotely piloted target drone. We also included markings for NF-104 and JF-104 aerospace trainers. Each option tells a story of innovation, risk, and technological advancement, capturing the essence of an era where the Starfighter was at the forefront of aerospace experimentation.
