This P-38J Lightning airplane is a replica scale model of the original aircraft manufactured by Lockheed and flown by ace pilot Thomas McGuire. Pilot Major McGuire had 38 air victories, just 2 less than Major Bong flying his P-38.
The P-38J Lightning model aircraft is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
