Revell 1/48 P-38 Lightning
December 30, 2016 in Aviation
A blast from the recent pass. This kit has been around forever so I thought I would try my hand at a natural metal finish. Used Tamiya TS-17 gloss aluminum from a rattle can. Then added some True Detail wheels and an UltraCast seat. Got too aggressive with the front wheel when cutting it off the molding block so it looks like it needs some air pressure. Used nylon thread for antenna and the decals are from spares. Lots of rivets and a canopy that’s pretty worthless but it still looks like a P-38. And to all you folks that follow iModeler have a safe but fun filled Happy New Year.
