P-38 Bat Out of Hell: F or G?


Recommended Posts

Was looking for some markings for the Tamiya P-38 and found an interesting one in Bat Out of Hell.  I've noticed that two different companies make decals for it, however, they interpret the plane differently.

 

Xtradecals have the plane as an F version with yellow spinners and tips:

Eduard have the plane as a G with red spinners and wingtips:

I'm guessing the color interpretation is based on B&W photos and up for debate, but does anyone know if the plane was an F or a G?  Or were there more than one Bat Out of Hell?  There's a thread on Hyperscale debating the colors and one post stating that there were both an F and a G version, but I'd like to get a second opinion as there are differences in construction between the F and G. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/viewtopic.php?p=2703255#p2703255

 

Edit:

Eduard also released decals for the version with yellow in their Early Lightnings kit, but still list it as a G.camo-c.jpg
