104 parts CHALENGE (Interceptor)

The goal of the challenge is to create an interceptor aircraft REPLICA using exactly 104 parts.


    An INTERCEPTOR is  a type of fighter  aircraft   designed specifically to attack enemy aircraft,particularly bombers and reconnaissance aircraft, as they approach. There are two general classes of interceptor: relatively lightweight aircraft built  for high  performance,  and heavier  aircraft designed to fly at night/adverse weather and operate over longer ranges. 

Period : WW1 until today
(Yep, they had interceptors in WW1 to attack Zeppelins, while in WW2 nazi-s had a lot of them, Me-163 is one example)

If you have doubts about your choice design, feel free to check with me in the comments section or anywhere if you don't want to reveal your choice to competition :)


This is a friendly contest between me and Blue0Bull to create a mobile friendly F-104. For fun, I invite you to join. Any interceptor is welcome as long it's the primary role of the aircraft


Rules:
1. Must be successor
2. New and own creation
3. No part mods allowed (except pilot and smoke parts). Editor mods and XML editing are encouraged
4. Plane must be a replica of an existing plane of any era (at least one built)
5. Wiki link in the description please.
6. 2 Entries for each player, different builds (only the best will be evaluated)
7. Aircraft must be able to engage and destroy an aerial target (AI Bomber)


Judging:
The best 10 creations enter the final (yep, i don't want to rate 140 poor creations, i will select only the best)
They will be judged by:
1.Visuals (yeah, even 104 parts creation can look good) 10p
2. Construction (how clever and skillful is your building technique) 10p
3. Functionality (how good your plane flies/land/takeoff and attacks) 10p
4. Replica (how well it resembles the real thing, blueprint/specs match) 10p


Prizes:
Each VALID entry gets an upvote.
1st place 10 upvotes
2rd place 7 upvotes
3th place 5 upvotes

Deadline February 24

This is intended to be a quick and funny challenge, but please put some brain and effort into your creation.

    Well my SR.53 is coming along well at only 70-ish parts so far. I only have to do the main landing gear and possibly some dimensions trimming.

    Yeah but the F-104 is very hard to fly. Most pilots couldn't land it in real life.

    @DeathStalker627
    1. Because is a very popular plane
    2. It's easy to build, simple shape, thin wings
    3. Maybe the 104 number on challenge name has a subliminal effect on people

    @BogdanX I've made something with 104 parts (Well that was fun) and it is based off a real aircraft that was built and flown but (and here's the crux of the matter) it was built as a test bed for high speed interception aircraft and wasn't armed as it never proceeded past the test phase, now I wanted to arm it as a "what if" the program had developed further. Would this be acceptable?

    @BogdanX any chance I could use the base fuselage and intakes from my original 104 with redesigned canopy, tailplane, wings, and LG?
