GUEST GALLERY: Neil Armstrong´s F-104N 1/72 by RICARDO RODRIGUEZ.

This original F-104 monument was once flown by Neil Armstrong. Now is displayed in the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University campus, Prescott, Arizona. It is painted with zenithal light effect to reinforce the illumination and imitate the contrast of the sunlight. 
For more info click on the assembly process link.
Ricardo is a really skilled modeller who loves trying new products and techniques. This F-104 is one of his fastest works and he built it specially for the Basic Modelling Guide. I´ll post some of his more elaborated pieces soon.
