Product description
  • This publication features expanded and revised historical overviews of the P-38s, along with detailed descriptions of each P-38 variant. The Early Lightning Details chapter also features new and expanded content compared to the original 1998 book. The chapter is illustrated with scores of detailed and meticulously restored photographs accompanied by captions that illustrate both important features and subtle differences between P-38 variants. Some of these images are original archival material, while others were chosen from hundreds of photos taken specifically for this book by the authors and their contributors. Of note, the Lightning Details chapter in P-38 Lightning in Detail and Scale, Part 1 features photos of the P-38F "Glacier Girl" to be found nowhere else. This P-38 was recovered from under the Greenland ice pack in 1992. Bert Kinzey took these photos during the restoration of "Glacier Girl" in 1998 and the photographs illustrate the details of the Lightning that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to represent.

    As with all of our publications in the Detail & Scale Series, the book concludes with a Modelers Section that features reviews of the plastic model kits of these early P-38 variants. Each review impartially and objectively highlights each kit's strengths and weaknesses, along with ways that a scale modeler can correct or improve upon accuracy and details.

    P-38 Lightning in Detail & Scale, Part 1 contains over 200 high-resolution photographs along with dozens of detailed line drawings of the P-38 variants covered. The Early Lightning Details Chapter alone has 122 photographs
