        Hello everyone Im building a P-38J from the above mentioned Squadron/Group in 1944. Based in Italy attached to the 15th A.F. So far all I have found are forward 1/3 or 1/2 views. The two or three that are full photo’s are to blurry to decide if the vertical tails have any horizontal stripes. Supposedly my aircraft has blue trimmed with gold but cannot confirm ? Id like to make sure before I add the decals in case I need to repaint ? My build as it sits ? J8spM5q.jpg

 

And a link to the build thread.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Hi Dennis,

 

Great job on the P-38.  Here's what Kenn Rust stated in his "Fifteenth Air Force Story".  Rather than type it all in, here is an image.

These are a few images that may help you or perhaps you've already seen them.
