The Book

This book provides a lot of information on the P-38L-5-LO. This variant was only marginally different in detail from other P-38's in the "L" series, so it would probably be useful for anyone wanting detail information on any of the later P-38's. The book consists entirely of scale drawings in 1/72 and 1/48 scale, a series of captioned color and black and white photos of entire airplanes and details, and a set of color drawings in back. It would serve as a very good reference for anyone wanting to build a model in either of those scales. The detail photos are from existing warbirds or from actual maintenance manuals, and there are even some interior views of the cockpit and engine compartments.


If you are doing a late model P-38 in either of those scales, this book is the one to get. Highly recommended.
