Lockheed P-38 - Whitman model airplane plan

Lockheed P-38 - Whitman

Lockheed P-38 - Whitman

The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was a World War II American propeller driven fighter aircraft. Developed to a United States Army Air Corps requirement, the P-38 had distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle containing the ------------pit and armament. Named "fork-tailed devil" by the Luftwaffe and "two planes, one pilot" by the Japanese. The P-38 was used in a number of roles, including interception, dive bombing, level bombing, ground-attack, night fighting, photo reconnaissance, radar and visual pathfinding for bombers, and evacuation missions,[8] and extensively as a long-range escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks under its wings.

The 22 inch wingspan Lockheed P-38 plan is from Whitman Publishing Company copyright 1942. It is powered by 2 rubber band motors which should be interesting to see the rubber being wound. The building of this model airplane is clearly shown on the plan with 3 views of the fuselage and a plan view of the wing. The fuselage consisting of 2 booms and a central nacelle implement essentially 3 similar construction techniques which is building 3 rectangular cross-sections then adding formers to create the rounded boom and the center nacelle. The 2nd page of the plan illustrates some of the construction processes as well as templates for the boom in center nacelle formers and the wing ribs. There are also some (in my opinion) construction instructions.
