    Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA1045 F-104S ASA-M Starfighter MM6934/9-31, 10� Gruppo/9� Stormo Grazzanise AB, October 2004 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 Update-Modified). By 1984 electronic miniaturization allowed the ASA update that meant 2/3s of the 205-plane fleet had the M61 cannon re-installed, new navigation systems, avionics and missiles. 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 as 9-51 having flown 3,836 hours. In 2014 the aircraft became a monument located at Grazzanise. Die-cast metal.
