Cutting Edge has offered a number of interesting options to backdate or alter the Trumpeter 1/32 P-38J/L into a recce bird. These options will give modelers even a wider variety of possibilities to work with using the stock kit as the starting point. But what about those folks that want to build the P-38J/L? This is the set you've been waiting for.
Cutting Edge has released a super detailed cockpit for the P-38J/L. This cockpit is a drop-in replacement for the Trumpeter kit, and while the kit cockpit wasn't bad, this detail set gives the AMS modeler more details to work with.
The detail set provides a new cockpit floor/nosegear well, instrument panel, rudder pedals, rear bulkhead, armor backplate and headrest, radio tray behind the pilot, sidewalls, new pilot's seat and frame, rubber-case posable seatbelts/harness, and all of the other details needed to busy up the office.
The set will dress up the Trumpeter 1/32 P-38 and will give you more reason to leave the cockpit hood and windows open!
My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
