Build one of four P-38 LIGHTNING variants: J, J Droopsnoot, L Pathfinder, or F-5E Photo Recon

When the first XP-38 took flight in 1939, the Army Air Corps instantly recognized that the Lighting had catapulted fighter aircraft design well into the future. At a time when 325 mph was an impressive speed for a fighter, the over 400 mph speed of the P-38 has a shock to all those concerned, friends or foes. In the early days of World War II, the Lighting went through its share of “teething” problems, but in the end, it proved to be an awesome fighter, notorious for long-range bomber escort during daylight attacks on German targets.

This 1/48 scale special combination kit comes complete with parts to make one of four different versions; a P-38 J, P-38 J Droopsnoot, P-38L Pathfinder, and a F-5E Photo Recon aircraft.

The fuselage is 6.5” long, with a wingspan measuring over a foot. Directions are clear and easy to follow for all variants. Comes with fully engraved panel lines, a highly detailed cockpit and landing gear compartment, and realistic PVC tires. A fine addition to any P-38 collection.
