Hasegawa 1/72 P-38J, Yippee

Did this one just because.  Out of the box, kit decals.  I have an August 1944 Flying magazine that has this P-38 on the cover.  Painted with Gunze Red Madder for the vermilion color it was, not sure there is as much orange in it as there should be.  Dunno.

Nice job John.  What a hotrod.  I had to lookup Yippee - #5000 that was repainted after the mascot shots and shipped out to the Pacific.

Thanks,

John

Thanks, all.  Just a fun little build, for a P-38.
