Lockheed P-38J Lightning (1:72)

my collection of „famous Lockheed aircrafts“ has lacked one model so far; that of a Lightning P-38. The Lightning was used by the Americans in World War II in the Pacific PTO and in Europe ETO. For a long time I could not decide on a particular variant until I came across a picture of Mark Postlethwaite. It depicts the aerial combat of a Lightning with a Me-163 Komet.
Now I have finished this P-38J-15 flown by Capt Arthur ‚Art‘ Jeffrey of 434th FS/479th FG as a model in scale 1:72. He has been awarded the first (and only) shoot down of a Komet with a P-38. On the German side, however, no losses were registered on that day, which may well be true if one reads the various reports available.
