Period: 2nd World War
Model Dim.: 24 cm
The Lockheed P-38 Lightning had been let me make it clear the most initial aircrafts of this second World War. It was a revolutionary heavy bomber because of its twin-boom fuselage, by which two Allison V engines were installed, with the pilot accommodated in an enhanced cockpit during the centre associated with the aircraft. The Lockheed P-38 was extremely sturdy, reliable and stable thanks to its engines which “rotated” inside opposite way. From famous twin-engine bomber came to be the version destined for reconnaissance and strategic strategies called the F-5E that more than 500 examples were made. Substantially deriving from P-38J and/or P-38L, the Lockheed F-5E had been equipped with two Allison 12 cylinder V turbo compression 1.475 hp machines which propelled the airplane to over 660 Km/h. L’F-5E ended up being equipped with as many as 6 cameras with various filming angles ideal for atmosphere reconnaissance. Its reconnaissance role ended up being completed in an outstanding way also thanks to the aircraft’s operative roof. The high altitudes which it might reach caused it to be hard to be intercepted by enemy bombers.
