Revelle 1/48 scale P-38 Lighting
By skippykeesler March 14, 2013
Beatiful model of Lockeeds wonder plane.Good detail,and excellent decal sheet.I did add some detail to the main gear wells as this area is lacking any detail.The gun compartment is nicely detailed.I finally built the fighter verision,I have built several of these kits and I always seem to build either the pathfinder or nightfighter version,I have a weakness for the nightfighter.I would highly recommend this kit to anyone with a little modeling experience.

ways to make it look more realistic
By brandonhish January 16, 2013
this kit is very tail heavy. but if you go to your local pet store and buy some wieghts that are used to hold plant life down in aquariums, they are little pieces of lead, if you put them in the nose of the plane as you are building it the will make it so that you can cut off the little plastic piece in the back of the plane and make the plane look more realistic. make sure that you have added enought weight before you cut that piece off though. and also make sure you take a little more time with the landing gear to build it correctly so that parts dont bend or sag in time

Good WWII kit of the P-38J
By Paul H. January 27, 2013
Looking at the various model pictures submitted for this kit, it is a good build in any of its configurations. While not entirely pleased with the fit of the parts, working around the shortcomings is relatively easy.

Overall a very good build
By jimwoodward1943 April 5, 2013
To overcome the nose heaviness of this model I took some clear plastic sprue, heated both ends and flattened them and glued one end to the bottom of horizontal stabilizer. The clear plastic is very inconspicuous and does not detract from the overall appearance of this great plane.
