Danish dart

Alongside the F-100 featured earlier, I refurbished this scruffy F-104 Starfighter.  Again I went for the simple but rather appealing all-over green finish.
The Royal Danish Air Force operated Starfighters from the mid-sixties to mid-eighties.  The attrition rate due to accidents was apparently 23.5%! 

As with the Sabre, the roundels began as WW2 Japanese and the tail flashes were hand painted.
