Aurora 1/48 P-38 Restoration Project


Recommended Posts

This is an eBay purchase of a couplle of built relics and of them being Aurora's P-38 ca late 1950s.  It is one of Auroras better kits so I decided to see if I could make a decent representation with the basic parts.  It was missing the props and rear tail elevator.  I used Monogram parts to replace the missing parts. The props fit as does the tail.  So this is where we stand.  It will an inflight model.  I won't be doing any updates at all, only using the parts provided. 

The USAF and later National insignia are kinda cool in a weird sort of way.  I'll probably sand down the biscuit sized rivets though.
