Italeri: 1:48 F-104G Starfighter Special Colour
Model Kit


The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, with its slender fuselage and the very
little wing surface, has been for a lot of years the reference fighter of the
Aeronautica Militare Italiana. Thanks to the thrust of its General Electric J79
afterburning turbojet engine, it could exceed Mach 2,2 with an excellent rate
of climb. During the years of its operational service, several fighter squadrons
of Aeronautica Militare, realized unique commemorative livery, with a strong an
amazing visual impact. The adoption of particular liverys was used both for the
celebrations of the fighter squadron flying activity and history, such as the
F-104G Streghe (Witches) made in 1989 by the 3° Stormo located in Verona
Villafranca using the colors of the 28° Gruppo, or to commemorate important
events on the mass culture. About this second category one of the best known is
the fantastic F-104G “Rosso 27”, made by the 4° Stormo 20° Gruppo, located
in Grosseto, that adopted the Ferrari Red livery and the number 27 in memory of
the Canadian F1 champion Gilles Villeneuve. Donated by Aeronautica Militare to
Ferrari the “Rosso 27” is the “gate guardian” at the Fiorano track.
