Hallo

Here I represent you the second P-38 Lightning out of a series of 5 aircraft.

P-38G-15LO, 43-2475, 48th FS/14th FG

El Bathan, Thunesia, second half of June 1943, Babe, flown by Edgar L. Yarberry

The kit is from Eduard. In my WIP I described all the working steps, my decisions and all shortcomings in every detail.

I will here only explain my paint job and final assembly.

The BIG difference are decals and stencils.

Here I used EXITO Decals of superb quality.

Also from Hobby Decal the dry transfers.

 

 

 

During my build I improved some steps from my first P-38.

Specially the cockpit.

The worst thing like last time is the Revi installation.

This time I failed, the armor glass is in position.

The painting was done with a mixture of OD 1 from Gunze C12 and some brown C79. Highly diluted of course.

The neutral grey also, as C13.

The shading in brighter and darker shades with white or yellow for OD, for neutral grey with white and darker with some black added.

Again all highly diluted. The weathering I did with salt. In detail explained in WIP.

At the very finish I used black highly diluted as overspray.

So have a look:

A wonderfully built and beautifully finished Lightning.  Just another great P-38 build.  Can't wait to see the others.  Thanks for sharing.

Wow- very nice early Lightning! I noticed you got the neutral grey struts and wheel bays that were applied to many P-38's- nice detail! As stated by the others, I am looking forward to seeing the next one in the series!:goodjob:
