Here she is at last…life got in the way more than a few times since I started building this wonderful kit.
I added an Ultracast seat and wheels, Master barrels and antenna from spares box. Decals are from the Eduard kit (Academy mold) that was issued a few years ago and the mission markings in the end came from the Pro Modeller boxing of the Hasegawa P-38F/G/H kit (thanks Norris). The mission markings in Eduard kit were way too big based on the pictures of real aircraft.
In summary a great kit and do yourself a favour, buy one and build it, plenty of nice schemes available with more in the offing – Fundekal & Xtradecals have new sheets coming with lots of interesting options. I will be buying them so stay tuned for another P-38 later this year, and hope someone does resin conversion for F-4 recon bird. Happy Modelling Darren
PS – I intend to add the antenna wires once I work out attachment point to canopy…
