.:EXITO DECALS:. ED72009 - 1:72 Lightning Strike

cat.no. ED72009

Our ninth decal set is entitled “Lightning Strike” and includes markings for three P-38s:
- P-38G-13-LO, s/n 43-2204, ‘Beautiful Lass’, flown by Lt. John G. ‘Jump’ O’Neill of 9th FS / 49th FG, Dobodura, New Guinea, late October 1943.
- P-38F-1-LO, s/n 41-7578, ‘Marjorie Ann’, possibly flown by Maj. Richard Ira ‘Dick’ Bong during his war bond tours, USA, late summer 1944.
- P-38G-15-LO, s/n 43-2475, ‘Babe’, as flown by Lt. Edgar L. Yarberry of 48th FS / 14th FG, El Bathan, Tunisia, second half of June 1943, and as flown by Lt. George P. Brown of 96th FS / 82nd FG, Italy, autumn 1943.

The two P-38Gs feature sexy nose art, whilst the P-38F sports a rather unusual finish. ‘Babe’ and ‘Marjorie Ann’ have never been reproduced in decal form before, whilst our depiction of ‘Beautiful Lass’ is a result of a careful study of the available photo material and differs from all previous interpretations. Decals include bonus markings carried by ‘Babe’ during its later service with the 82nd FG. Illustrations were created by Andrzej Sadlo.

This decal sheet was printed by industry leader, Cartograf of Italy, which ensures top printing quality and ease of application. It is complemented by instructions that differ from the plain market standard. Each subject is presented on an A4-sized sheet, with large side aircraft profiles printed on the front, and the remaining artwork, photos of the actual aircraft and all necessary information laid out on the rear side. This way you not only get some cool decals for your model kit, but also attractive posters to adorn your man cave, at the same time!

.:Italeri:. T-33A SHOOTING STAR - reissue 2020


The subsonic two-seater jet trainer Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star played an important role in the operational training of many military pilots during the ‘50s. It was developed on the airframe of the single-seat fighter P-80, from which it differed by a longer fuselage. The design was simple and practical with the famous "T" shape characterizes by its straight and low wing. The United States Air Force used the T-33 to perform advanced pilot training tasks until the early 1960s when it was progressively replaced by the most advanced Northrop T-38 Talon. Compared to P-80, the T-33 adopted a lighter armament formed by only 2 0.50 (12.7 mm.) machine guns). Its reliability has allowed the T-33 to obtain rapid diffusion in numerous air forces that employed the plane not only for training activities but also in operational missions. The last T-33s in service flew until the 2000s.
