Hi,  a 2009 building: The Lockheed Model 322 based on the Lockheed P.38 Airfix kit.

This aircraft was exported to England without turbochargers. Finally, the R.A.F. wasn't interested because of total inadaptation to western european fights.

France was intersted too but never received the aircrafts because of the Armistice.

My what-il model is a french Aircraft at the Lockheed factories at Burbank.

Beautiful planes are french! (Amiot 143, for example...ugh!)

Looks so clean!  How come MY models never look that clean?  Nice job.   :wub:

Ooh, shiny!

Very nice and clean, CAO - it really makes you wonder what might have happened had the armistice happened slightly later.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Brilliant stuff  :bow:- I'm still scared stiff of natural metal finishes at 57  :banghead:
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Beautiful silver finish b)  Perhaps they could equip a Free French squadron in Britain?

Looks sleek and very dangerous! At first, I thought it might be the famous P-38 flown by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, author of The Little Prince. The clean (and flawless!) NMF really fits early W.W. II and your seamless modification make this beauty a real show-stopper!
