www.wingmfg.com. A nice P-38 short kit, 70 inch wingspan for 2 x .40 or .60.

Yellow Aircraft makes the best P-38 IMHO, if they still make it. It has a glass fuse and is a sweet flying bird. I heard a rumor that it was no longer available but I could be wrong and confused...

Royal-maratuka's got one.I just bought my buddies older royal
p-38.He has already started on it so it wont take my long to
finish it when I get started.I have seen one flying and it looked good,but i also heard about handling problems on p-38s when
an engine flames out.I seen the results after word,But the guy
test flying it was an overly confident hotdog who did,nt care
cause he was'nt the one who spent all the time building it.So
I cant wait to see mine go up.Hope o'le hotdog is there so I
can show how to realy fly a twin engine p-38 lightning.

See vicrc.com

You may be able to convince him to sell you one.

All I can say is, WOW!!!!!!!!

I've built plugs and molds as well as done glass layup professionally and this is one of the most complex glass jobs I have ever seen. It's even more impressive that he's executed it as well as he has. I am truly impressed.
