Lightning White 33

Here's my take on Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-38 Lightning model. The kit gives you the choice of building either Miss Virginia (P-38 G) or White 33 (P-38F). Despite the historical significance of Miss Virginia and the mission to shoot-down Admiral Ya[...]

Tamiya 1/48 P-38F Lightning “Texas Terror/The Mad Dash”.

This was the last project completed in 2020 for me. Built completelyOOB except for some fine solder used as the antenna stay, and, of course, Eduard seat harness. Airbrushed in Tamiya acrylics, and weathered with Ammo by Mig enamel washes & [...]

1/48 Tamiya P-38F Bat Outta Hell

INTRODUCTION The P-38 Lightning was originally planned to be a high altitude twin engined bomber interceptor. It was designed by Clarence Kelly Johnson's team with its now famous and unique twin boom configuration around the turbo-supercharged [...]

Quinta Studios 1/48 P-38F Interior Detail Set For The Tamiya Kit

As I was finally getting around to get started on the fairly new Tamiya P-38F/G Lightning. It's amazing it has been out for over a year. I have been building Tamiya kits in order that starting with Ki-84 Hayate Frank way back in 1992. So to[...]

1/48 Tamiya P-38G “Zirkus Rosarius”

In looking for something different I chose to my second Tamiya P-38 as a captured aircraft, albeit flown briefly, and evaluated by the Luftwaffe. I added Ultracast wheels, Eduard steel belts on kit seat and the guns are Master barrels set for [...]

Upcoming kit reviews. Meng Dr-1 with MVR bust, and Tamiya P-38H Limited Edition kits

Several weeks ago I received these kits from Sprue Brothers. I was able to get my hands on these two thanks to my loving wife (for putting up with me) and an available balance on a credit card. I also want to thank Paul Nash, @white4freak fo[...]

P-38 Lightening

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 P-38 because it is my favorite WW2 plane. I originally thought I would have problems with the[...]

Tomahawk! Curtiss Mk. ii in 1/48

This is AK431, a workhorse from the North Africa campaign, based in Fayid, Egypt in 1943. I was attracted to the P-40’s battered, leaky look - a survivor in a tough environment. Apart from an unfortunate Me-109 I mauled as a 10-year-old, this is[...]
