Superscale 48-1187: P-38G/J Lightnings

Units: 49 and 475 FG




Scott Van Aken

This latest batch finishes up with a pair of P-38s. The recommended kit for these planes is the one from Hasegawa and that is what the markings have been sized for. You could probably use the Academy or Monogram kits if you wished, but might have to do some trimming or additional painting.

First is the P-38J 'Jo' of the 9th FS, 49th FG. This plane is in unpainted metal with red spinners and fin tips.

Next is an unnamed P-38J from the 433rd FS/475th FG. This one has the nice tail markings and a blue rear half of the spinner.

Finally, the P-38G named "Beautiful Lass" with a great nose art from the 9th Fs/49th FG. This OD over Neutral Grey aircraft has red spinners.

Data for one and insignia enough for two of these aircraft and a fine data placement guide to help as well.
