  1. This craft is a full stock 1:1 replica of the F-104C Starfighter. Intended to be simple replica to serve as my introduction into the world of fighter craft replica's. Instead it became one of my highest part count fighter craft and by far my most accurate replica in general. With 660 parts it's a hefty 40 tonnes, however due to how it was designed it still has decent enough aerodynamics that a bit of engine clipping has allowed it to achieve the required performance. It is able to reach mach 2.6, which is much faster than the F-104 actually ever flew at, although the F-104 possessed the power and aerodynamics to achieve such speeds, however parts like the cockpit limited its speed as it was never designed to take such strain. It has a rotation speed of 60 m/s A stall speed of 40 m/s Its maneuverability...Well, it won't exactly be flying under any bridges All pretty much what you would expect from an F-104, so not a big loss. On the development side, this craft came to together slowly but smoothly. I spent just as much time in the blueprints as did actually building it, the result was that I really had to redo or adjust many sections. This style of building is one I have been employing for a while, but this craft shows the fruits of that labor more than any other. BIG THANKS TO PHANTOM AEROSPACE! Fellow builders have been suggesting that I build a fighter replica for quite some time now, although I always refused. That is until @Phantomic suggested that I start off simple to ease my way into it, specifically the F-104. I just want to give him a huge thanks for encouraging me to build this, as it was one of the most fun replicas I have done in a long time. Please check out his craft, he makes a variety of craft from really detailed trucks and other vehicle replicas, to really sexy and practical stockprop fighter craft. https://kerbalx.com/PhantomAerospace Also you should download his own F-104C replica, it's excellently done and quite practical, plus all of that for exactly 1/10 the part count of mine, you can't beat it! https://kerbalx.com/PhantomAerospace/F-104C Download Link: https://kerbalx.com/Kronus_Aerospace/Kronus-F-104C-Starfighter
  2. The F-104G was an export version of the original Starfighter built for the USAF in the early 60s. This aircraft saw extensive service with European countries, it was often used outside of it’s original role of a high speed interceptor, being assigned to low altitude ground attack missions which didn’t really suit it’s sluggish flight characteristics caused by high wing loading. It’s quirky flight characteristics and speed-focused, low lift design made it an exceptionally tough plane to fly in European conditions. Multiple accidents, often resulting in death of the pilot earned it the Widowmaker nickname among the German pilots. The Starfighter was a troubled, but a classic design and one of the first high mach interceptors in service. The G version features an additional dorsal fin for stability. This plane also features a jettisonable canopy activated either through staging or the abort key. Due to fairing drag issues present in 1.4.3. this planes speed is lowered. This is a game bug and will hopefully be fixed in the future. Have fun flying! DOWNLOAD LINK: https://kerbalx.com/EvenFlow/F-104G-Starfighter v1.0 - Initial release v1.1 - Major changes to the canopy and the nose section of the airplane, they have been made more proportional and pointy (thank you for the feedback selfish_meme!). Minor tweaks to the positioning of the undercarriage. Vertical stabilizer leading edge angle has been corrected to match the real aircraft.
  3. KerbalX Download ~200 parts Ridiculously maneuverable for whatever reason Can barely pierce Mach 1 Looks awesome. Thats all I can say really.
  4. Hi! If you did not read my previous post, I'm actually RonaldoFTW's new account(lost access to both email and password), so I'm going to be re-making my old replicas. Here's a F-104 Starfighter. Enjoy! Pics: http://imgur.com/gallery/PcGlh Download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/91a3b9axvyx2q8q/Lockheed F-104 Starfighter.craft?dl=0
  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lgPfjtGDLg Shows a heavy rolling motion when under the Mach. (1:10~1:50) It is actually similar?
