Lockheed F-104 Starfighter Airplane Models

Delve into our curated collection of diecast models of the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter - Precisely Detailed, Historically Significant, and Collectible Aircraft Models.

The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, known as "The Missile With a Man in It," was a revolutionary American jet fighter aircraft. First flown in the early 1950s, it was distinguished by its radical design, including extremely thin, sharp-edged wings and a high thrust-to-weight ratio, enabling remarkable performance at high speeds and altitudes. The F-104 set numerous speed and altitude records and was widely used by air forces around the world.

Notable variants of the Starfighter include the F-104A/C (initial production fighter versions), F-104G (a multi-role version produced under license by several NATO countries), and the CF-104 (Canadian version optimized for nuclear strike and reconnaissance). The Starfighter's role as an interceptor and its deployment in various Cold War scenarios make it a subject of great interest for military aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those fascinated by the technological advancements of the era.
