P-38 Yippee

part of my "air group" project....
this P38 is crude to say the least... it basically does not have a cockpit for example.... but i wanted some colourful schemes and this one certainly qualifies, so i had to use it.
added a few details to it.
complete project has been a bit of stealth mode.... i wanted it finishe before posting, but as usual.... it is taking too long :P

That's a colourful rendition of a very crude kit. Top work, as usual.

Wow! Spanjaard, You definitely invested more time, effort and skill into your P-38J #5000 kit than I did, and your results are stunning. Your level of detail is outstanding for this crude kit. Just your cockpit canopy alone is worth learning from. I like the weathering and added detail, like gun barrels, wire aerials, etc. I still have to make my canopy frames, which I think I will do with silver stripe decal. I do not think I will add gun barrels or aerials. But I like your work! Great job! R/ Dutch

Wow, quite a bit of detailing in such a tiny model! In the early '60s, my father was stationed in Japan for a while, and I remember at the BX, they had dozens of tiny aircraft kits for sale for only 10 yen (about 3¢ at the time), so my brother and I used to buy them from time to time. They must have been about 1:144. I had no idea they still made aircraft kits in that scale. It would never have occurred to me to try to add so much detail. Nice work!
