Lockheed F-4-1-LO Lightning (P-38) - 1st PRU, RAAF, A55-3
Aviation Archive - WWII - Photo Reconnaissance. Nice model, and the P-38 mold can't be beat. Nicely modified nose, with camera fairing and I think a sighting mast, though it could be an aerial. Corgi should be given credit for covering the recon planes of WWII; this model wasn't a particularly good seller, but anyone in love with the twin-boomer should have this colorful version in the collection.

Photographers: Included in this update are some test shots using different saturation and white balance settings. I chose the moderate saturation and reddish white balance; a higher saturation would be too vivid for a WWII warplane, and normal white balance would appear too washed out and dull.
