Revell 1/32 P-38 Lightning

This was my 1984 attempt at sprucing up the venerable Revell 1/32nd scale P-38 Lightning.  The cockpit was all scratch built and the canopy was vacuum-formed.  Landing gears and wheels were machined brass.  The tires and spinners were machined acrylic.  Turbochargers were built from a combination of acrylic and brass machinings.  Gun tubes were turned from aluminum.  Gear doors were re-skinned with aluminum sheet.  The “Angel” was hand lettered.
