Lockheed - America's Top WWII Ace

Richard Bong P-38

P-38 Lightning // Richard Bong's "Marge"


The Lightning was designed in 1937 as a high-altitude interceptor. The first one built, the XP-38, made its public debut on February 11, 1939 by flying from California to New York in seven hours. Because of its unorthodox design, the airplane experienced "growing pains" and it required several years to perfect it for combat. Late in 1942, it went into large-scale operations during the North African campaign where the German Luftwaffe named it "Der Gabelschwanz Teufel"- "The Forked-Tail Devil." Equipped with droppable fuel tanks under its wings, the P-38 was used extensively as a long-range escort fighter and saw action in practically every major combat area of the world. A very versatile aircraft, the Lightning was also used for dive bombing, level bombing, ground strafing and photo reconnaissance missions. This model is painted to reflect the aircraft flown by Major Richard Bong, America's top ACE in World War II with 40 air victories. Mahogany Wood. Scale: 1/40. Wingspan 15 5/8 inches, Length 11 1/4 inches.
