my next ww2 plane i built. i deconstructed my p-51 for parts to build this.
About this creation
you can read more about the real p-38 lightning by clicking this sentece if you wish.
thiw view really captures the model. you really get a sense how its built.
the side view. shows you some of the engine greebling along the sides.
the rear view. shows you why the luftwaffe called it the "twin forked devil."
close up of the cockpit. the cockpit is actually supposed to be forward of the engine but it was very hard to make it to scale and put the cockpit forward enough. another problem was the propellers sense the p-38's nose actually goes past the props.
the pilot standing infront of the landing gear.
-moc anniversary coming up next weekend....
