This one gives me a missing texture for the pilot.

Arrggghhh. Fixed. Try it again. Thanks for the catch, I'm only one guy and it's been a frantic couple of weeks getting everything updated 🙂

  • jocko417 changed the title to F-104 Starfighter skins by jocko417

First post updated to try and clarify things. Sometimes I amaze myself with my own idiocy. That updated Common Textures file has now been renamed the "SHARED" file... since, you know, there's already a Common Textures file as part of the mod download... gee, that wouldn't be confusing, would it?

Installation instructions updated to be simpler, I hope.  🙂

@jocko417, these are awesome looking skins - and I never had any idea that the Starfighter enjoyed such a smorgasbord of different liveries.  I wonder if your approach would happen to have a series of layered Photoshop PSD files that would enable others to paint other variations - especially those of us that have a particular unit or aircraft in mind.  You're only one dude, dude!  In the X-Plane world (and perhaps DCS!) this would be a "paint kit" of sorts.  Any possibility?

This skin will be very very useful once Ugra releases Cyprus update... Just saying.

Lukewaffe bare metal and two CAF green meanies available in first post. Don’t hit your head on the RWR blisters during the walk around 😉

Rrrr... great as always mate! 🤩

Any chance for this camo sheme too (the best CAF sheme for me)?

Yes, still weathering it. About the only scheme in CF-104 history that looked dirty, especially in that last few years.

Damn, why didn´t you say it earlier.

Paint kit uploaded to ED, awaiting approval!

Cool.  Do we have to have our user skins approved by ED before we can post them?

After a bunch of research for an F-104 kit build, I've discovered that there is an exception to the shorter vertical stabilizer on F-104C's, where the fin/rudder is about 20-25% shorter longitudinally than on the F-104G, as modeled by VSN.  (The 104C fin/rudder doesn't stick out over the exhaust quite as far as the G).  The exception was 56-0885, the aircraft used to recapture the speed, time to climb and absolute altitude record when held by the F-104.  It had the tail section of an F-104B grafted on instead of the normal "C model" tail.  Not to count rivets or anything...
