|Decals from Aeromaster set #48-631, "Fork Tailed Devils, Part 1" were used for
the markings of this particular subject and were excellent. They even correctly
captured the misspelling of "Crew Chiff" on the original bird! (Incidentally, a
photograph of this subject as well as a color profile are included in the Squadron Signal
Walk Around book on the P-38). When all was ready, the entire aircraft was airbrushed
with a mix of Testors Dullcote and Glosscote to tone the finish down and yet still retain a
bit of sheen. Pastels and Tamiya weathering sticks were used to simulate the exhaust
stains along the booms.
