Model Description

Hobbymaster 1/72nd scale HA1040 Lockheed F-104G 25+50 "25th Anniversary of JG-34" Luftwaffe, 1984. Buy online at Flying Tigers.

The Lockheed F-104C came about as the result of Tactical Air Command (TAC) decision that the F-104A wasn’t a capable supersonic tactical strike fighter. The F-104C was equipped with an in-flight refueling probe to extend its range and was capable of delivering a tactical nuclear weapon. Put into service during the Vietnam War the USAF realized the F-104C wasn’t the aircraft for Vietnam and was replaced with the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The surviving F-104Cs were transferred to the 198th TFS of the Puerto Rico Air National Guard.

F-104G Starfighter 25+50 was manufactured by Fokker Aircraft Company in 1963 as an RF-104G 683-8161 and served with the German Air Force JG-34 as 24+19 that operated the Starfighter from 1964 until 1987. Later the aircraft was converted to an F-104G and in 1984 was given a special paint scheme and serial to commemorate two events. 1984 was the 25th Anniversary of JG-34 operations and the 50th Anniversary of the Memmingen Airfield, home to JG-34. Along with the special paint the aircraft received number 25+50 to match the two anniversaries.
