1:115 Scale Metal Diecast – Lockheed P-38 Lightning – Length: 4.25" Wingspan: 5.5”
This P-38 model is made to be displayed in the inflight configuration. It is mostly made of metal and very heavy/dense. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall.
Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive.
Since there is no option for a landing gear, a stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).
The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring. Look at the photos and you will see very clear and crisp nose art and markings.
The model comes in a window box that measures 6" by 6" by 2.5"
