F-104 Starfighter downsize Fat Cat
I was sent the FatCat plans for the F-104 Starfighter. I built the Centuri Fighter Fleet F-104 Starfighter and I did not care for their rendition. This was one of a few projects that kept me busy on those cold, snowy nights.
I used a BT-55 and the Bullpup N/C. 3/32 balsa wing and tail feathers. Four PNC-5W Nose Cone for tip tanks. I split a PNC in half for the intake baffels.
Painted in NASA colors, it still needs a few decals, otherwise it's complete.
I flew it yesterday at the CMASS Amsbury launch. Beautiful barrel roll and it leveled off for apogee. I used a 12" chute because of the high winds. No damage upon landing. I lost a tip tank cone somewhere in the flight.
I hope you like it.
