Hello!

My name is Lieuwe de Vries and as a hobby I draw aircraft profiles that I sometimes also sell. I'd like to show some of them to you. First off some early german F-104G's in natural metal finishes.

You can! Atleast in my browser there is a scroll bar underneath my post. If that doesn't work you can always look me up on facebook, full name Lieuwe de Vries.

I can't even see the images. You must have a really slow server or the link is wrong. You can upload the file to the "My Files" section and then insert into the Forum post.

Strange, I can view and save them here, even on my cellphone.



Does this one work?

Yes, I can see the last one. Great detail on this one! You can send all of them to me and I can make a page on the site for them.

They look great indeed, the detail is astounding! I never knew the Dutch had a shark mouth on one. Any plans for Belgian ones? Possibly from KB or Tiger scheme?

Fantastic job!

Something I have been studying and working on the last few weeks;

In the final years of RNLAF F-104 operations only two units still operated the F-104, 312 Squadron and the "Uitfaserings Onderdeel" or "Phase Out Unit" whose acronym in dutch was UFO. The badge was orange and either round or triangular in shape with the letters UFO in black. It became a normal practice for each crewchief to paint a "zap" on the machine he was responsible for.


D-8061 312 Sqn "Happy Hooker"



D-8063 UFO "Mirror Image"



I intend to do more as I find better pictures of the markings and the entire machines

Another late machine with a crewchief zap.



Another joke that never seemed to get old was zapping other unit's or even countries machines. This F-104G was zapped when it overnighted at 5 Sqn's, a EE Lighting, base.
