  • The P-38J Lightning, famously associated with the legendary pilot Richard "Dick" Bong, holds a unique place in aviation history. As one of the leading American aces during World War II, Bong made an indelible mark with this remarkable twin-engine fighter aircraft. Flying his P-38J named "Marge," Dick Bong achieved an astonishing 40 aerial victories over the Pacific, solidifying his status as the top American ace of the war.
  • The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was an American fighter aircraft used by the US Air Force during the World War II. Developed to a United States Army Air Corps requirement, the P-38 had distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle containing the pilot and armament. The aircraft was used in a number of different roles, including interception, dive bombing, level bombing, ground strafing, close air support, photo reconnaissance missions, and extensively as a long-range escort fighter when equipped with external drop tanks. Piloted by Richard Ira “Dick” Bong, he was the United States highest scoring air ace during World War II. Credited for having shot down 40 Japanese aircraft, he was the recipient of the Medal of Honor for all his aerial victories in the P-38J Lightning.
  • The P-38J Lightning, with its distinctive twin-boom design, was a powerful and versatile combat aircraft. It served in various theaters during World War II, including the Pacific, European, and Mediterranean fronts. Its adaptability for both long-range escort missions and ground attack operations made it a vital component of the Allied air forces.
  • This meticulously crafted 1:115 scale model captures the essence of the P-38J Lightning, allowing aviation enthusiasts and collectors to own a piece of history. Display this replica proudly to honor the legacy of Dick Bong and the P-38 Lightning, a true legend in the annals of aviation.
