Lockheed P-38 F/G Lightning was an American twin-engine piston fighter aircraft used extensively during the Second World War. The plane was designed under the supervision of Clarence “Kelly” Johnson, who is famously known for his work on Lockheed Skunk Work projects, among which Sr-71 Blackbird and U-2 Dragon Lady spy planes. Lockheed Lightning was nothing short of a legend among those project too. P-38 Lightning was flown in various roles among which dive-bombing, night-fighter, long-range bomber escort and reconnaissance plane.
Lockheed P-38 Lightning was used in Europe, but gained its popularity from the Pacific theater, where was the primary escort plane up until the introduction of North American P-51 Mustang in the late stages of WWII. The downside of the Lockheed P-38 was its roll rate, however it was loved by the pilots who flew it due to its forgivable nature of flying. Thanks to its qualities and most specifically its speed characteristics, P-38 Lightning helped aviation scientists understand high-speed aerodynamics as compressibility and Mach Tuck effect.
Rhino Red Prints drawings are vector file bundles designed to serve the basic needs of various sectors. 3D designers, Publishers, Decal Makers, RC and Plastic Model Makers often need profile or top views and even sometimes combination of those, featuring different aircraft. Such drawings take time and effort to be completed. Red Rhino Prints drawings are made to be very close to reality, but does not represent absolutely accurate blueprints of the vehicles depicted. The blueprints in the form of file bundle are in 48th scale and are close to reality, but there might be discrepancies with the real vehicles depicted.
