Availability: In stock
SKU: ACA12208
Manufacturer: Academy Plastic Models
R 352,95

Academy plastic model, 1/48 Scale unassembled plastic model kit requiring Paint and Glue to complete. One P-38 in particular recently became famous not because of its war exploits, but because of how it survived over time. This P-38F was one of six Lightnings and two B-17s that were forced to land on a glacier in Greenland during deteriorating weather conditions on a ferry flight to England. Buried under 262 feet of snow and ice, this particular aircraft has been the only one located to date and was recovered and returned to the United States in the early 1990s. Today, the aircraft dubbed 'Glacier Girl' has been carefully restored to flying condition and is operating out of Middlesboro, KY.
