P-38L-5-LO Lightning – build report Part 1

Hi!

After few german planes in 1/32nd scale I decided to do something different, a plane that I wanted to build for years but never actually have the opportunity. Until now.

This is a P-38L-5-LO Lightning from HobbyBoss in 1/48th scale.

Box art is looks very much like Cyber-Hobby.

Interesting is fact that the fuselage comes with wings already attached and it’s cut in half vertically.

Cockpit is painted using Tamiya XF-71 Cockpit Green. I’ve put some wash from AK interactive.

Instrument panel was painted using Tamiya XF-1 Black and dry brushed using Mr Hobby C-37 RLM75. Flight instruments are a decal.
