Description

Our ninth decal set is entitled “Lightning Strike” and includes markings for three P-38s:
- P-38G-13-LO, s/n 43-2204, ‘Beautiful Lass’, flown by Lt. John G. ‘Jump’ O’Neill of 9th FS / 49th FG, Dobodura, New Guinea, late October 1943.
- P-38F-1-LO, s/n 41-7578, ‘Marjorie Ann’, possibly flown by Maj. Richard Ira ‘Dick’ Bong during his war bond tours, USA, late summer 1944.
- P-38G-15-LO, s/n 43-2475, ‘Babe’, as flown by Lt. Edgar L. Yarberry of 48th FS / 14th FG, El Bathan, Tunisia, second half of June 1943, and as flown by Lt. George P. Brown of 96th FS / 82nd FG, Italy, autumn 1943.

The two P-38Gs feature sexy nose art, whilst the P-38F sports a rather unusual finish. ‘Babe’ and ‘Marjorie Ann’ have never been reproduced in decal form before, whilst our depiction of ‘Beautiful Lass’ is a result of a careful study of the available photo material and differs from all previous interpretations. Decals include bonus markings carried by ‘Babe’ during its later service with the 82nd FG. Illustrations were created by Andrzej Sadlo.

This decal sheet was printed by industry leader, Cartograf of Italy, which ensures top printing quality and ease of application. It is complemented by instructions that differ from the plain market standard. Each subject is presented on an A4-sized sheet, with large side aircraft profiles printed on the front, and the remaining artwork, photos of the actual aircraft and all necessary information laid out on the rear side. This way you not only get some cool decals for your model kit, but also attractive posters to adorn your man cave, at the same time!
