Hasegawa 1/48 P-38L "Bardahl Lightning" done

Recommended Posts

Finished with this one. When I first saw a photo of this airplane I decided I had to build a model of it. Very much out of the usual. It wasn't a racer but was a airshow performer. I didn't do any mods to the kit except replace the seat with one from my stash. Painted with Testors overall. Decals are by Draw Decals. I t was a very straight forward build and I'm pleased with the final results. I hope you are too.

Remember to click on the 1st photo for best resolution and to view as a slide show. :)

Speed and quality, normally the two aren't compatible but you have proven that to be completely wrong. Clean and precise work, awesome paint and decals. Gorgeous build.

Keep 'em comin


Thanks Peter. It certainly stands out on the shelf! :)
