Well, after much chopping, filling sanding and other general mayhem, this combination of the RS Models P-322 1 and the MPC P-38F models have been beaten into a semblance of the very first Lightning, the XP-38.  For those who might be interested in the hows and whys, the build thread is HERE.

Now that's some old school skills to make a very unique model! And although you didn't mention it, it had to involve extra elbow grease for the NMF not to show all the work you did. Very nice!

Very nice work.  For anyone else interested in early P-38 versions, they might want to check out my CD-ROM titled Lockheed P-38 Lightning Gallery.  It has 517 photos, including 41 shots of the XP-58 Chain Lightning and two photos of the XP-38, one of which shows it after it crashed.
