Twin Engined GB - P-38 ++FINISHED++

Post by Deacon »

I'm trying to get the mojo back and the Airfix kit I started for this GB won't do it. :sad:

Last year I went mad buying P-38's, P-47's and P-51's but as yet have not built a P-38.

So, here is Hobby Boss' 1:72 P-38L

Cheers

Alan

Good choice mate, hopefully a simple assembly and quick result to get you back in the mood :smile: Looking forward to seeing it come together!

Okay, the mojo has slightly improved and this was the state of play with this build as of Friday last.

I must admit I like the colour scheme of this machine.

Very nice, Alan. What was the build like? The last few Hobby Boss I done weren't that great.
Regards, Ken

Thanks mate. :smile:

I enjoyed the build, but you are right, the way the single wing join meets the fuselage on some of their kits leaves a lot to be desired.

I have 3 more of this kit to do and must admit that I am looking forward to doing them. :smile:
