P-38J "Yippee" 1/144 Minicraft kit
Built for the Lockheed Air And Space Campaign
May 1, 2015 - October 31, 2015
This is the Minicraft kit for the P-38J "Yippee", the 5,000th P-38 built, painted orange and flown around for some publicity photos then repainted and shipped off to war. The fit of this kit was fairly good, there is no cockpit at all and the canopy fit is poor, I tinted the canopy and painted it for the frames. I did the "in flight" look and I like it for jets, but it doesn't look that great for props. For more info you can read my kit review.
