Harv, your P-38 is a gorgeous model and a true work of perseverance and devotion.

Besides, six years isn't that long. I've barely been married that long! :)

You can just see those hot engines in the discoloration. Beautiful black plane, that's for certain.

Well personally, I'm damned pleased to see it. 

 

Harvey my friend, you've done more than just model for the past 6 years. In a short time just look at what you have offered me? I am sure there are many people around you who have felt the same. Chances are, you don't even know. :)

 

Nice people have this affect on others. :)

An unique subject plus it is a Trumpeters lightning that I deemed as an unbuildable a pure waste of time, money and human potential and bin it . You are the better man. :) Kudos to you Harvey! Love the exhaust staining :)

Cheers

There are so many detailed touches in your Lightning Harv that make it an exceptional model: the subtle variations of the black finish, the exhaust/engine staining around the superchargers, the turned nosewheel even.....it all looks so right! 6 years of building well spent I'd say.
