P-38J Lightning "Pudgy" Interceptor Aircraft

The P-38 Lightning was developed in response to a 1937 request from the Army Air Corps for a twin-engine interceptor that could climb to 20,000 feet in six minutes and have a top speed of 360 mph.

With the P-38 capable of high speeds, development was slowed by problems of compressibility and flutter, since little was known at the time about flight with near-transonic airflow over parts of air frames.

The P-38 saw service in Europe, where it gained the nickname "fork-tailed devil" by German pilots and soldiers.

However, it was in the Pacific where it found its greatest success.

Details:

  • WINGSPAN: 19.5 INCHES
  • LENGTH: 14.25 INCHES
  • 1/32 SCALE
  • This is the perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
