Avantgarde Model Kits has announced the development of a new tool F-104G Starfighter model kit in 1/48 scale.
The offering (88038) is reportedly being developed in cooperation with Military Modeling Club Taiwan with the design concept including:
1. As AMK weapons, all slide molded weapons. 2. Single piece slide molded fuselages. NOT one, but TWO. Clicking 2 single piece fuselages into wings to have the main shape the aircraft will be challenge to our designing skill. Hope we can make it! 3. In addition to normal version, we will have another version with FULL INTERNAL STRUCTURES. 4. Same as other AMK kits, DEATILS will be as much as we can do.
The company states that development will probably take 1-2 years. A tentative release date has not been set.
