Who was updating Ajundars Starfighters?

Recommended Posts

Im remembering some pics, that where floating around some time ago. The Modder has just deleted the canopy frames and glas from Ajundars models and put some fakepilot Canopy`s on the single and twoseater versions.

 

I forgot who was making it and I just wanted to ask, what happen to this project/idea?? Spinners is creating a nice RF-104G mod in the what if section. Looks good! :drinks: An he was the one who reminds me of this old mod that was not released so far i know.

 

best regards

the lods have far to many faults, that cannot be fixed without the max files -- major 'tractor beams', open meshes, etc.

 

best would be if a 3D Guru create new-build 104As

 

for an RF-104G, why not just use the 3W one??? It's readly availabe, and a MUCH better model

To be fair Martin, I was just showing a re-decaled version of Spillone104's RF-104G 'LOROP' which uses the Third Wire F-104G with a new recce nose added via Fake Pilot.

 

What have you got planned?

Yes saw it, you have done a good job on this! My plan was to create a A and C version, but couldnt find any skins for the G model. Looked trough the download sections but nothing usefull was there. I think some objects needed to be deleted.

brand NEW A & C models are needed -- we had f***loads of problems with ajundair's Paki A model (and B as well) for the Indo-Pak mod, that were, and still are, unfixable.

 

as for the RF-104G, the Oprheus pods are readily availalbe in several weapons paks. there was no A recon model that I've ever seen described in any of my Zipper books (Pakis use a 2-seater B, and the back seater used a regular 35mm camera for the recon photos during one of the India/Pakistani "misunderstandings")

I have now used the NF-104A as a base for the A model, it works realy good. The skin is realy good, only need some serial numbers. I have used the ini entries for some parts that needed to be deleted, so I think it`s a nice F-104A mod.

 

Im not so into the Starfighters, is it right that the innerwing stations and central weaponstation where added later and the A had only the Wingtipstations?

wingtip sidwinders or fuel tanks

midwing fueltanks/bombs/rp/p0rndispensers/etc

centerline station (may not have carrier winders???)

 

basically, the loadout as seen on the 104G

 

 

at minimum, you'll need WarbirdTech #38 and In Detail & Scale #38

other physical differences from A/C to G -- fin/rudder chord is thinner & not as tall on A, AFR probe was a 'bolt on item' for C

 

this should help (book attached)

 

if you need to Detail & Scale, let me know. It has some superb 5-views that illustra the differences better, methinks

Ehm... I was doing some kind of upgrade along with Paulopanz for the Aju 104 but the project slowed down for the skins.

Anyway I'm not having so much problem with those early 104 after deleting some parts and adding new ones where needed.

Just some screens. Maybe I can upload all the A, C, and D and F models. Some additional skins can be added later.

Awesome work Spillone. Would love to see these :

 

7_1.jpg

Unit: 9 Sqn, PAF

Serial: 56-800

 

 

7_4.jpg

Unit: 9 Sqn, PAF

Serial: 56-775

Sargodha AFB, circa 1971. Reports from Indian MiG-21-pilots that engaged PAF Starfighters in air combats on 17 December 1971 indicate that the Starfighters wore 'desert camouflage'. It is now well-known that a number of Starfighters from the No.9 Squadron Royal Jordanian Air Force were sent to Pakistan during this war: some of these aircraft were camouflaged, and it is now believed that the Indians on 17 December engaged these 'ex-Jordanian' F-104A's, shooting down two of them and one of original PAF Starfighters as well.

Spill I think you will have enough skins eh? Lord know what made me make that many. The Tenn ANG one is one of my favorites I did. I bought that awesome Superscale F-104 decal sheet and scanned at super high res to get thoese nice looking decals.
