The metal surfaces response of PBR,if worked properly, is astonishing.

"One of the most tricky parts in painting is setting up proper reflections in a (theoretically) matte finishing. is not that easy because of the different painting during a long history (started with RAL coatings,finishing with FS) an the paint itself changes during weathering and use.So,it's very important to find the proper "thickness" of the light spot band during direct sun exposure."

"The number 1"

A little story about the 104's stenciling.

Since the white numbers on the front were applied locally on the Wing,the shape,thickness,roundness of the numbers were slightly different.
Here is an example, the.."number 1" of 53°Stormo (Wing) in Cameri,was something like a story by itself,if you compare it with some other examples.
Another difference that you can see here,the number "3" between 53-11 and 3-11,but there are a lot of examples and changes during 40 years of history.

F-104 (M.M. 6546)

This F-104 (M.M. 6546) never moved from the ground with this livery,it was just a nice static painting layout,made many years ago.

But yes,it's gorgeous.

Update: 03 Dec 2019

New F/RF TF 104 G develop continues in background, despite we had some delays due to familiar problems (Bonnie's wedding, some health problem now restored).



However do not expect any new stuff until spring 2020,

Here a footage of a test on special weapon drop at Capo Frasca, interior cockpit is still the old F/RF 104 G model used to speed up the development, new one will be remade from scratch.using last P3D PBR tecnologies.
