Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Lockheed F-104 S Starfighter - MM6934/9-31, 10° Gruppo / 9° Stormo, Italian Air Force, Grazzanise Air Base, Italy, October 2004

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9".  Wingspan: 3.5"



Limited production of approximately 600 models worldwide


Lockheed F-104S Starfighter MM6934 was delivered to the Italian Air Force in September 1978 and assigned to the 36th Wing. In June 1984 MM6934 was assigned to 5 ° Stormo as 5-37. In April 2000 the aircraft was converted into an ASA-M and after several more moves the aircraft was assigned to 10° Gruppo / 9° Stormo on November 11, 2001. On October 11, 2004 MM6934 of 9° Stormo completed its final flight, having flown 3,836 hours. In 2014 the aircraft became a monument located at Grazzanise.

Italy and Lockheed developed an improved F-104G, the F-104S (Super). The new variant had an advanced weapons system for AIM-7 missiles, deleted M61 cannon, new engine, stronger airframe, 2 additional ventral fins and 2 additional under wing pylons for AIM-7 missiles. The “S” variant was updated twice, the “ASA” (Aggiornamento Sistema d’Armi meaning Weapon System Update) look-down/shoot-down air-superiority fighter) and the ‘ASA-M’ (Aggiornamento Sistema d’Arma-Modificato, Weapon System Modified). By 1984 electronic miniaturization allowed the ASA update that meant 2/3s of the 205-plane fleet had the cannon re-installed, new navigation systems, avionics and missiles.
