Tamiya’s Lockheed P38 Lightning – another one
Presenting my first build of 2021.
The well known Tamiya P38 Lightning.
It has been presented here multiple times and a lot has been said about it, mainly positive.
I can only say that all is true, the kit has a perfect fit and it is barely impossible to make mistakes.
This kit is built almost OOB as the White 33. Only added brake lines and Ushi antenna wiring.
For the OD, I created my own mixture, Vallejo interior green with light green in a 4:1 ratio.
For weathering pre-shading was done, black pigment for gun traces.
Besides the gauges decal, the entire interior was hand painted. The seatbelts however could have been improved, the used decals are not that impressive.
At the end this was a relaxed build and I’m pretty satisfied with the result.
Really appreciate any kind of feedback, no matter positive or negative.
