uncovering the

Lockheed (T)F-104G Starfighter

DACO is very proud to announce the fifth book in our detailed range "Uncovering the...", inwhich the Lockheed F-104G and TF-104G Starfighters are uncovered.
And as both authors have a strong passion for this aircraft, we have done an extra effort to give you a true bible by showing everything of the in & outside of this famous jet.

Around 875 (all colour) detailed photos are given of various Starfighters still located all around Europe, some ready to be scrapped, others being restorated with passion and several still in prestine condition. Many pictures show items and details that have never been published before, and not a single item has not been uncovered.

This book has the size of 21 x 24 cm (8.25 x 9.50 inch), contains of 160 pages and has additional 2 large foldouts ( 1 meter / 40" long) with highly accurate 1/72nd & 1/48th scale drawings (yep, we measured the Starfighter completely for these drawings) and the various cockpit lay-out drawings .

Due to the massive sales sofar, the first edition of the English version has been almost sold out.
The SECOND edition - with some minor changes - is NOW available.
Thanks for everyone to make it such a success!

we start with uncovering the outside of the F-104G:

showing amongst others the in & outside of both engine types

going deeply into the landing gear (8 pages on the main gear alone already)

16 pages are reserved for the cockpit and computer bay of the single seater

showing both ejection seat variants in detail, here's a preview of the german used MB seat:

24 pages are used to uncover the TF-104G twoseater seperately

Although no longer in the air since the mid '80s, you get 16 pages of maintenance pictures:

including details of the engine

Ground Support Equipment is not forgotten

20 pages are showing all kinds of armament the Starfighter could carry, from missiles, rockets, bombs and dispensers to nukes...

160 pages with 875+ detailed colour pictures in total...

and not to forget the 1 meter long fold out pages
with very accurate 1/72nd and 1/48th scale drawings and cockpit diagrams:

We hope you are convinced that this book is worth to be on your desk !

 

And if this book is popular - as we hope - we will uncover the other types of the Starfighter 'soon'
(there was just no space to add the A/B/C/D, CF & S in this book too)...

We would like to show you a selection of the feedback received meanwhile:

It's an amazing accomplishment, never before have I seen so much detail
uncovered! Thank you VERY much for all the effort that went into it,
it definitely shows.

I've just received your book "Uncovering The F-104 Starfighter" and have to
say it's outstanding! The attention to detail is amazing . . .
no wonder it took so long to complete!
It has inspired me to finally tackle my 1/32 F-104G model,
so as an F-104 "Nut" I say many thanks for your efforts.

I received my copy of the Lockheed (T)F-104G Starfighter Book / Bible as I
am calling it officially now, in the mail today. You have out done
yourselves again! This book is absolutely amazing in both quality,
craftmanship and indepth material for the reader/modeller. The technical
drawings included are outstanding! I can't say enough.

Just a note to say my F-104 book arrived today. It is a real help for guys
like me who build models for display as it would not be possible to do what
you do with the books in any practical way.

The book is an inspiration! I would love to have the time to incorporate
the level of detail that you show, but can only imagine at present "so many
models, so little time!" That does not, however, stop me from appreciating
the depth of research that has gone into this, a well presented anthology
of the various bits and pieces that went to make up such an iconic
aircraft. Well done.

I just had a look at the F-104 book and it even exceeds my expectations

I would like to mention that your books are awesome ( I rarely use that word).
I have not seen the details covered in other books as well as you cover them.
Nice work, I love it!

I must say it's really excellent. I have collected massive amount of photo
reference from all over the net about the F-104 and your book is
unsurpassed in detail and coverage.
Thanks for all your hard work in making these books.
