Buy your copy of this brand-new, Limited-Edition modelling guide!

Following on from the release of my earlier titles, I have now created a detailed guide to the building and painting of the Starfighter in miniature.

Comprising 72 pages, this in-depth guide is printed on glossy paper with high production values, my book clearly guides the modeller through everything that they need, to construct and paint this very popular aircraft in scale. Open the covers and you will find in-depth features on the Matchbox 1/72 TF-104G; the Monogram 1/48 F-104G; the Hasegawa 1/48 F-104C and TF-104G; the recently released Kinetic F-104G and finally, an extended look at the very impressive Italeri 1/32 TF-104G. You will also find a walk-round of Bruntingthorpe’s exhibit, as well as full-sized images taken as the aircraft was retired from Italian service.

Each chapter offers plenty of construction and painting tips, with easy to follow ideas that will help you to build this aircraft from the aforementioned kits, for your collection. But more than that, the ideas and thoughts offered will also be of use should you not only want to build other kits of this family of aircraft, but also, if you just want some ideas for other models of similar design and vintage. It’s all there! 

Below you will find all of the payment details to go with the earlier information on the book. Should you wish to see once again some of the pages from the book, please visit my earlier Blog entry:


As with previous titles, this one is being created as a strictly limited-run product and as before, the price reflects this. Many of you will already have the other books in your collections so — hopefully — will know what this means in terms of quality and how enjoyable it is to own something that’s rather niche in its approach!

Spencer Pollard, April 2021.

I'm formerly the editor in charge of Military In Scale magazine and latterly, Model Airplane International. Editing duties to one side, I'm now a full-time modelmaker with Doolittle Media, working to supply modelling articles and material for a number of their group titles, including MAI and Tamiya Model Magazine International. I'm also an avid fan of Assassin's creed, Coventry City FC and when the mood takes me, a drummer of only passing skill. Here though, you'll find what I do best: build models and occassionally, write about them!
