Airfix Catalogue description:

Forty detailed parts go to make this superb scale model which has a wing span of 8 1/2". First appearing in 1943, the P-38J was used mainly for escort duties, accompanying American heavy bombers on their missions over German targets. It was also used in the Pacific campaign and its success is emphasised by the fact that nearly 10,000 Lightnings were produced.

- From 1st Edition (1962)
