Lockheed P-38J 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-38J Lightning was different from the previous versions. Notable differences were the chin radiators and the flat bullet-proof windscreens. In total 2970 Js were built, each batch featuring slight improvements over the previous one. Among those were power-boosted ailerons, new electrical system and increased fuel capacity. Some of the Lockheed P-38J Lightnings were converted to F-5s, more specifically B, C, E and F modifications. In one such P-38J, converted to an unarmed F-5B, the famous writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry lost his life. Saint-Exupéry’s P-38J vanished on 31t of July 1944 over the Mediterranean nearby Corsica, only to be found in 2000 and fractions of the plane to be recovered in 2004.
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.
