Ugo Crisponi is a famous Italian illustrator who manages the AVIATIONGRAPHIC.COM, a guild of Aviation Artists & Illustrators offering more than 1.500 Squadron Prints, Lithographs, Illustrations and Aviation Art. Most of them are official lithos expressely made for U.S. Air Force, U.S. NAVY, U.S. MARINE CORPS, Luftwaffe, KLU, HEER, AMI, and lots of other Squadrons and Airborne Law Enforcement Units worldwide, from Italian State Police to Sacramento Police Department, Dutch Aviation Police, Italian Carabinieri Nuclei Elicotteri, Calgary Police Air Services, Gainesville Police Department, etc. Ugo designed the following collection of profiles that are particularly interesting since they show different colour schemes, configurations and markings of the F-104 G, S, ASA and ASA-M of the Aeronautica Militare (Italian Air Force, ItAF). They are useful for both modelers, historians and Starfighter enthusiasts. Each profile has a corresponding artwork (or ” Squadron print”) that contains information of the depicted Squadron. The collection of F-104 prints, courtesy of Aviation Graphic, is available at the following page: http://cencio4.wordpress.com/f-104-prints/.
