MONOGRAM 1/48 P-38J Lightning instructions help, please.
Posted by Train Wreck Pete on Saturday, February 28, 2015 4:59 PM
Does anyone have a copy of the instructions from the Monogram release of this kit? The Revell release has all the same parts for building four versions of the plane, but the instructions leave out the section for building the F-5 photo-recon version, which is the version I would like to build. I would truly appreciate a scan of that section if possible. TIA!

Have you looked at R-M's website, to see if the instructions are available to download as a pdf?

I think I still have them, but it may take a day or 2 for me to find them.

The instructions on the R-M site are the ones for the current release which omit the recon version, but thank you for the suggestion, Baron. I actually forgot to check there.

Thank you, John. Much appreciated and no rush. Have to wait for the deep freeze to go away before I can do any painting.

Ah, sorry that didn't help!  I'll look in my stash and see if I have an older boxing.

I found them.  Do you need the whole sheet, or just the section for the conversions?

I just need the conversion section, John. Everything else is in the current instructions. Now to figure out how to send a PM on here ...

Shawn M. : Those photos will be a huge help as well. Thank you!
