The original of this F-104G model with the registration 7151 belonged to the "336 Mira Kiokseos Bombardismou ‘Mount Olympus'" based in Tanagra. On March 31, 1983, it was retired. To commemorate the F-104's "Final Flight" in the Greek air force, it received an impressive special livery with a black eagle above Mount Olympus. This also features on the model which will be released as limited edition of 1,750 items.

Lockheed F-104G Starfighter

Designed to meet a need for an aircraft that could successfully compete against the MiG-15 in Korea, the F-104 Starfighter was first flown on February 20, 1958. American pilots believed that the F-86 Sabre was too large and complex to outmaneuver the lighter MiG, and they wanted a smaller, simpler, high-performance aircraft to replace it. The resulting design was a light, aerodynamic airframe wrapped around a powerful J79 turbojet engine. The F-104C was used by the USAF from 1958 until 1967, but most of the 2,578 production Starfighters were built and flown by members of NATO, including the Italian Air Force, which didn't retire it until 2004.
