This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.
Academy has re-released their excellent kit of the P-38 with parts for ALL the late variants in one box! Parts, decals and instructions are included to enable you to build a stock P-38J, P-38J droopsnoot (with clear nose glazing for a bombardier), P-38L Pathfinder (with radar nose) or F-5E photo recon variant. PLUS - all the parts are included for the P-38M night-fighter variant, so if you know what needs to be done and can source some decals, you can build that too! Full weapons load is included with drop tanks, bombs, 5" HVARs on "Christmas tree" launchers as well as the "bazooka tubes" fitted to some Lightnings.
