I only took a limited amount of in progress shots.  The intakes at the rear of the booms are not very well represented in the kit.  In order to create the separation between the intake and the boom, I reconstructed the front of the intake with styrene.  You can see the separation in the photo of an actual P-38.  The outlet doors were fashioned from brass sheet.

The spinners were machined from acrylic.  Due to their size, I machined the rear wheels from acrylic and styrene.  The tires were machined from a black acrylic.
