Instruction Sheet

The P-38 Lightning fighter was the basis for various conversions, many of which were to serve in the photo-reconnaissance role, equipped with a dedicated camera nose section and designated the F-4 and F-5. These airframes were one of the very best recon machines of the war. The F-5A was created using the P-38G version. When Tamiya released their new P-38 model, we simply cannot but jump to the opportunity and prepare these resin conversion sets. Besides the new resin nose, the sets also offer clear camera windows made from special, oven-baked clear resin. The modeller will also get a sheet of decals for two interesting-looking options and a set of pre-cut masks. The airframes portrayed will no doubt appeal to the modeller, the first one bears striking jaws, a couple of pin-up girls and some titling on its nose, the other one, whilst not being so very visually pleasing, is definitely one of the most famous P-38-based aircraft ever as it was, on several occasions flown by the immortal French character, pilot and a writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
