The Lockheed P-38J was the only American fighter in continuous production throughout America's involvement in the war, with P-38J and P-38L-LO being the primary production variants. While there were some teething problems for the aircraft, the P-38 proved to be a very reliable fighter, notable for its speed. The P-38 was the aircraft of choice for America's two top aces of World War II, Richard Bong and Thomas McGuire. After the war, P-38s were phased out of American military service and sold to the militaries of smaller nations, and some were demilitarized and sold to civilian interests, including a number of air racers who prized the P-38's speed. This model is a meticulously crafted replica of the P-38 at its best, making it something that any enthusiast will treasure for decades.
