P-38 Lightning - HobbyBoss 1/72


Recommended Posts

After the long and protracted Nimrod build I need something easy to boost my 2019 build count and give me a bit of a break so, as usual, I've chosen a Hobby Boss 'easy assembly' from the stash:

As usual the sprues have a nice level of detail but there aren't many of them:

No worries about getting the booms straight (hooray!). I bet these doors won't close up:

Nice clear parts:

Ooh, prop bushes. Two nice schemes:

I think I'll do 'Bowlegs' - a bit more colourful.

Hi Stew and welcome :) 

Just for you, a reveal:

Hmmm. Not sure why that deserves extra protection. I'll probably break them getting them off the gates now…

A fine choice Ced! I have a lot of love for the p-38 and it will be nice to see how this goes together. I have only ever built the Hasegawa one which was ok, but really would like more!

If there's room I'll squeeze in the corner if I may?

Like the P-38 in bare metal finish will this be flying escort to the Nimrod?

More room in that fridge Ced, another case of beer needed.

I think our Ced's got lost, I was expecting "paint on" by now!
