Lockheed P-38 Lightning Model Airplane, World War 2 Fighter Aircraft,
Military 1/48 Scale Diecast Aircraft Models for Display or Play.

Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighter aircraft diecast models.  These 1/48 Scale diecast models show the P38 Lightning World War 2 Fighter Aircraft in it's finest detail.  Not only are these diecast aircraft fun to look at and play with, they are historical markers showing the history of the P-38 Lightning and the history of the P-38's Squadrons, Pilots, Crews, Missions, and Markings.  Keeping this historical information in our eyes keeps the history of our soldiers in our minds.  Why did these famous pilots fight for our nation and what liberties did they give to all or our citizens, liberties that we enjoy today.  The Soldiers of World War 2 and all subsequent wars and even in peace time, give us our right to speak our mind about our government without reprisal of criminal actions.  This is why this is a government of the people, for the people and by the people.  We owe all Veterans a huge word of gratitude every day for all that they have done for every one of us.

The P-38 Lightning was built by Lockheed during WW2.  The P38 Lightning is 37' 10" long and has a wingspan of 52' 0".  The P-38 Lightning used two Allison V-1710-27/29 engines each having 1150 hp giving the airplane 2300 hp total.  The max speed of the P38 is 395 mph. 
There are many versions of this plane, these specs cover only one version.

Research Notes:
The twin-engine P-38 Lightning, a radical design conceived by Lockheed design genius Clarence "Kelly" Johnson in the late 1930s, became one of the war's most successful fighter planes, serving in Europe and the Pacific. About 10,000 of the planes were built, and about 32 complete or partial airframes are believed to still exist, perhaps 10 in operational condition.

I have something to say about the instructors who trained our fighter pilots that fought the Japanese at Ie Shima and Okinawa in WW2. I was stationed aboard a supply ship that was anchored close enough that we could see the island of IeShima. We were at our battle stations constantly because we were being attacked by the Japanese suicide planes. I witnessed the pilots of the P-47s the P-51s-and later the P-38s as they returned from protecting our bombers during missions to Japan. When a pilot was credited with a Zek kill he was allowed to put his fighter plane through aerobatics before landing and it appeared there must have been competition among these pilots. I say that because it would be impossible for me to describe to you how great these young pilots were doing their thing above the Island of Ie Shima and Okinawa and they seemed to want to out do each other. I often wondered how their fighter held together. They had to be well trained to down the Japanese Zeros and also to get that kind of performance out of their fighter planes. They put on a great exhibition and we always enjoyed watching them. I know they were a credit to their country and also their instructors. Well trained pilots had a greater chance of staying alive.
