Produktbeskrivning:

Our legendary 1/48 Aircraft Series welcomes a new addition in the form of the J variant of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning!

The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was an American twin engine fighter aircraft produced by Lockheed; it was the first Lockheed fighter aircraft which was officially adopted into service.

The P-38’s variants were used during World War II and they reached about 10,000’s production. Equipped with intercoolers under engines, the P-38J Lightning showed 1,450hp at high altitude and maximum 1,600hp, plus longer range courtesy of fuel tanks in wingtip leading edges in addition to the main fuel tank. As a result, the P-38J offered stable and astonishing performance at any altitudes, and gained great renown among American fighter aircraft.

About the Model

• This is a 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 240mm, width: 330mm.

• The unique form (twin-engine, twin-tailplane) with radiator fairing and larger engine cowlings of the P-38J (late P-38) is accurately captured in style.

• Features realistic renderings of air ducts connecting intercoolers to oil coolers.

• New-shape turbo superchargers are also realistically depicted.

• The first canopy with the flat front glass and 2-part third canopy are authentically recreated.

• The second canopy can be depicted open or closed. A 1-part slide-molded piece succinctly and realistically depicts closed canopy, and the three parts including vertically openable upper hatch recreates the opened.

• New parts are added to depict wingtip leading edges which have detailed refueling ports.

• The steering wheel is replaced by a gun-grip type stick.

• A detailed cockpit features separate side walls with the throttle box and radio while the Lynn-3 gunsight, radio at the back of cockpit and more are also depicted.

• Nose landing gear has updated fork and main landing gear has reinforced upper rotating struts.

• The spar part (combined with the nose landing gear bay) is inserted into wing, which ensures an accurate dihedral angle.

• Contains parts to recreate two each of 150- and 300-gallon drop tanks.

• Weights for nose and right, left engine cowlings are included in the kit to ensure correct balance of the model when displayed.

• Comes with three marking options, including the “Marge" P-38J which the US ace pilot, Richard Ira Bong flew.

• Comes with canopy masking stickers and a full-color painting guide.
