The P-38 was used most successfully in the Pacific Theater of Operations and the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations as the aircraft of America's top aces, Richard Bong (40 victories), Thomas McGuire (38 victories), and Charles H. MacDonald (27 victories). In the South West Pacific theater, the P-38 was the primary long-range fighter of United States Army Air Forces until the introduction of large numbers of P-51D Mustangs toward the end of the war. Unusual for an early-war fighter design, both engines were supplemented by turbosuperchargers, making it one of the earliest Allied fighters capable of performing well at high altitudes.The turbosuperchargers also muffled the exhaust, making the P-38's operation relatively quiet.
These high detailed upgrades are sure to improve upon vacuum formed, or other stock superchargers included with current and past P38 kits/models.
Designed with weight in mind, these superchargers have a robust outer shell but are essentially hollow internally. Providing a rigid design that is lighter than the resin equivalent.
Each set of superchargers includes two mounting blocks for easy installation into your build. If the mounting blocks do not fit your build, they can easily be used as a template to make a wooden equivalent.
Available In 2 Colors! (Bronze and Silver)
For an added realistic look, be sure to add our Ultra Realism Coating to darken them up and give them just the right amount of weathering!
