    Hallo,

    Long ago, I have showed some progress pics on kartonbau.de forum of this model. Maybe someone saw them? If I am not mistaken, it was in Malo's topic about Flymodel's P-38 preview. But now it is fully complete. It even has a diorama now.
    This was a model for our first lithuanian contest (aka "Group Build") and I won a prize. Now I have entered the model to the dishmodels.ru russian contest also. It is called "Dishow 2006" It is a very tough contest, because models in there are so awesome. But still I'm happy to see my Lightning among other participants:

    About my model. This is what I wrote for the contest:

    And pictures:

    As usual, I am totally blown away by your work on this model, Mindaugas!

    Getting beyond the excellent build of the model itself (a true joy to see!), the illumination and diorama setting are superb! I love the way the map draps over the top of the kero can, really quite nicely done!

    It is easy to see how this model won that contest, and I wouldn't be surprised if honors are bestowed in the dishmodels competition as well.

    Thank you so much for sharing photos of your work with us once again!

    Cheers!
    Jim

    Not a lot of paint on most P38s, all natural finish. Most of the rest were standard camo markings; pick a subject aircraft and go for it. Lots of sites on Google...
