This is the Hasegawa TF-104G Kit virtually straight out of the box.  It just has the Aeroclub Ejection seats and the PJ Production Pilots and a needle for a pitot tube.  The flaps have been dropped, using CMK resin.

The Unit had USAF markings but mostly had German Pilots from the West German Pilot Training Sylabus who enjoyed better training conditions and nearly empty skies in the sunny South Western US. The Aircraft were USAF registered to avoid jurisdiction and liability issues.
