I've been wanting to build an edf f-104 for a while, and finally broke down and decided to do it. The wingspan is 30" clean, without tip tanks, and is 80" long. It's actually longer than my build table. The nose will be removable for transport. Sadly I couldn't find scale retracts for this size. If anyone finds some let me know. Im building it from dollar tree foamboard and will remove the paper, this should reduce weight. I found the plans online for free. They are a multi view of a f-104 C and D, variants. As per the title, I'll be building the C variant. I wish I could have done the G but none were found. The plans also have the fuselage formers and wing roots. I will not be doing a scale airfoil. Please do give tips for building a nice scale fuselage. The plans I printed ending up being at 1700%. It was 99 "by 212.5" plan. 225 pages. Make sure you have plenty of ink! I will try to keep this updated the most I can.
