Trumpeter P-38 | Wishful Thinking | 1:32


Recommended Posts

Hi all!
Thats my first post here. Trumpeter kit with added Eduard PE interior, some cables. 1mm steel rod used for making landing gear more sturdy, large amounts of fishing lead inside nose. Master gun barrels. Painted using Gunze SM II. I was inspired by Kagero fantastic profiles inside Pacific Lightnings, decals are from this book.

Very nice Lightning!  That Trumpeter kit isn’t the easiest build out there, but you tamed it and man, does it look good! 

Thank you, yes it needs engagement and time.

Beautiful job!  Looks terrific and has me thinking about the Tamiya P-38 in my stash...  Yours is fantastic.  Welcome aboard!

Thank you! Tamiya kit is superb, sadly they are focused on 1:48 scale.
