The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter is a single-engine, supersonic interceptor aircraft which later became widely used as an attack aircraft. It was originally developed by Lockheed for the United States Air Force (USAF), but was later produced by several other nations, seeing widespread service outside the United States. One of the Century Series of fighter aircraft, it was operated by the air forces of more than a dozen nations from 1958 to 2004. (wiki)

    @Blue0Bull yeah, I didn't bother with scaling, and I'm working on a new version that will be the one to be judged, with better flaps, the current behavior is, to be frank, horrendous.

    Looks great. Although I should be honest the scale of the replica isn't completely accurate and it handles a bit weird with the flaps deployed. Nonetheless, finally something to compete with :)
