P-38 Lightening

July 22, 2020 · in Aviation · · 8 · 1.8K

This is one of my first aircraft models. A couple weeks ago I was looking around on Imodler and decided that I wanted to build an aircraft. I chose the because it is my favorite WW2 plane. I originally thought I would have problems with the canopy since I brush painted the entire thing but it turned out fine.
