"Not a bad model"
masterchief191
This is more of a starter model. I have built many of these, they are quite easy and do not require a lot of skill, its just a very basic Lightning. This model is not too detailed, the plastic is a little brittle and can break easily and the prop blades are prone to breaking just from handling while assembling the model. Although it has some bad points, i still recommend it because its the right price for what your getting and if you have taken a break from building, this is a good one to get back in the groove with.

"Good overall kit"
Randy (Ohio, USA)
This is an older Revell/Monogram kit I built as a kid and decided to do again. Great memories. A bigger kit and fun to build, I did the droop snout Bomba Dear version. Parts sometimes hard to fit and in the description on the page it says has a detailed Allison engine which it does not. Overall a fun kit and 4 stars. I recommend to any modeler who enjoys building the great war birds of WW2.

 
"jewel of a model"
bkatz4
while a challenge to build, this kit blew me away! it always amazes me how the model engineers capture the essence of all the aircraft they design a model kit for. in this scale, the p-38 requires some skill to craft the kit into a showpiece that will draw your attention. once again revell supplies enough wow factor with opening panels and exquisite details that make you want to examine the finished model just a little more. i had a blast crafting this kit, and would recomend it to anyone. alittle patience goes a long way, but it's definitely worth the time and attention. bang for the buck is off the charts! i will consider buying the kit again to build one of the other versions that the kit supplies extra parts for. i had a tough time deciding which version to build, so i'll most likely take a second or even third crack at this one. awsome kit.

 
"get what youpay for"
j w bolen (Ohio)
Not the best 1/48 P 38 kit but maybe the cheapest out now.. My example had some flash. Nose is issue. (See other Reviews) But it is not bad for the price. different options all require skill and patience to do justice. to them. Kind of kit I stash for when just want to model to keep occupied With work it makes a good . not great model.
