After starting rather late in life when it comes to model aircraft i honed my skills/practice on 1:48 scale. But after hours and hours of dedicated commitment i came to the conclusion i was ready for the next step. Actually i was a little disappointed at some of the kits lack of detail and being a stickler for detail i decided to put the 1:48s into storage and start on the 1:32 scale. With time hopefully leading to 1:24 scale even though the higher scales i have noticed are a little limited especially in 1:24.
But anyway, here's my first build (1:32) Trumpeter 1/32 P - 38J The bazooka rockets were borrowed from a P-47 spare box my friend was kind enough to give me. But the rest is mostly out of the box build. I went a little different with the paint scheme as plain silver just (i thought) would not stand out that much to all other P - 38 builds. I have to say it's a good kit, i had no major issues and it was completed over a period of about 140hrs on and off as time permitted.
