The P-38 was developed before WWII for the United States Army Air Force. Used extensively in Europe and the Pacific, the P-38 holds the record as the aircraft flown by the highest scoring fighter ace of the United States in WWII. The new Minicraft 1/144 scale P-38J offers new markings depicting two aircraft operating from 1943 to 1945. This new kit includes high quality Cartograf decals with 2 marking options and features pre-decorated clear parts. Two sets of clear parts are included in this kit, one undecorated and the second that includes pre-painted clear parts to simulate the canopy windshield and canopy frame. This kit includes the following markings: P-38J Touché of Lt. Col. James Herren FS/479th FG, Wattisham, June 1944 P-38J of the FS/364th FG at Honington, England Mid-1944
