If it is really your third model assembled, and you've painted it with a brush - you really have a big potential. Looks really good. Congrats!

Great looking build for a third outing. Boss
Nice recovery on landing gear. Can't tell any difference.
Not to worry, P-38's have a 'nose up' attitude
to them, sitting on the ground.
Very good.

Some more pictures of the finished model would be great
5. April, 00:38
Johan van Meerloo
well first need some decals, most models I got were without decals, need to find some RAAF ones
5. April, 08:58
wilky
Yes, they would help immensely
5. April, 10:47
Johan van Meerloo
for sure, hopefully I can find some WW2 RAAF roundels

That's how we learn. I really like SEAC markings having done a Buffalo and a Boomerang.

problem solved!

Francis D'Oliveira
Yes, now you're finished. Is the Liberator your next build?
14. April, 11:04
Johan van Meerloo
the liberator is a constant build for that 52yo kit, paint is done, nose is getting done, then paint arround the nose should be finetuned (of the cammo) then all need to be added to a diorama

very nice. Your P38 looks like a black widow....night fighter ;))

Helo Thomas, Thank you for mentioning this build. Very interesting for my project (the F-5A actually). A very cleanbuild so far. Odd that the CMK kit fits the Hasegawa P-38 better than the Tamiya one !
I was not able to locate any pictures of Saint-Exupery's F-5b (the one he dies in). Did you find any ? I have a picture of the F-5B nicknamed 'Stinky' (not 'Stinky II') with serial number 42-68225, which was most likely very similar in options and finish than Saint-Ex's 42-68223. And also a color one of 42-68205 (both form the internet). Are you interested ?

Hi Boris.
Yes, I am curious how my CMK nose will fit on the Tamiya Lightning, the adventure of fitting it lies ahead.
According the serials, I think a 'nearby' serial gives just a hint about the basic color of the airframe. Most of the planes were in American service, just a handful were handed over to the Free French Army, I guess they were re-painted occasionally.
On one hand I recently read some books, in one of them, an eye-witness described (most probably) 42-68223 as silver with an American star on the lower side of the wing (?) and another one with the French cocarde on top of the wing. On the other hand, a side view picture of the plane exists.
To me the only questions still open are:
- what colors were the spinners painted on the 42-68223
- how exactly did a 'piggyback' seat (for example on 42-13080, F-5A, the other one St-Ex flew) exactly looked like, the documentation I own is pretty lean, I checked millions of books, manuals, educational movies etc. without a hint if there was a backrest for the backseat or not...

Hi Thomas, I would love to see the picture you have of 42-68223. I have not located it yet, although I have not seriously into the research.
My impression of those F-5's (most of them, and other aircrafts (B-26,...) used by the French in the MTO) is that they were just passed on to the French from local US units. The French took them over as is, just painting over the minimum : squadron codes and national insignia. They did not bother painting them over (camouflage), especially late in the war when the US didn't bother with camouflage either.
That being said, was 42-68223 used in another US unit before being passed on the the French ? If so, I would wager that the spinners were not repainted.
As for the piggyback seat, since those were local modifications (like two-seater Mustangs, etc.), I would again only expecte reliable information from the actual aircraft or possibly ones based in the same airfields...
BTW, what pictures or first-hand accounts have been published of the wreck that was fished out off of Marseille recently, believed to be 42-68223 ?
