Eduard's 1/48 scale
P-38J "Over Europe"

P-38J "Over Europe"



Eduard's 1/48 scale P-38J Over Europe is available online from Squadron

 

Description


Academy's P-38 is one of the best Lightning kits in 1/48 scale. It is already some years old but shows some good details and fine panel lines.

Eduard has now used that kit for its new limited Edition "P-38J over Europe".

The box contains further two nice photo-etched frets and a lot of resin parts for the cockpit area.

There is also a nice decal sheet with extremely thin decals.

 

 

I used a decal sheet out of a Kagero book showing off a P-38J of the 20th FG. My focus was to show a very well worn P-38 often seen in WW II. So first I painted the model in black, than silver (Mr Metalizer by Gunze) and finaly in the common USAAF olive drab. Afterwards I taped some sections.

After removing the tape there were some nice effects on the fuselage and the wings. It needs a liitle bit of patience, but it is worth the effort.

I hope you'll like this Lightning.
