Tamiya 1:48 Scale, P-38G, “Lightning”
Just a little more weathering and I’ll call her finished.
Probably the best engineered model kit of all time…my opinion, but if you’ve built one or are building one, then I think you know what I am talking about. I will not go into detail about the kit, except to say this: This is NOT a typical Tamiya “Shake and Bake”. It is involved, but the way she is engineered is phenomenal, and the build will be an amazing experience.
Paint is Tamiya, decals are Cutting Edge, belts are Eduard steel, weapons are Quick Boost and weathering was done using thinned oils and pastel chalks.
P-38G, #11, “Tommie’s Lucky Penny”, 48th FS, 14th FG, Lt. Sidney W. Weatherford North Africa, August, 1943.
