The giant scale P-38 Lighting plan set is 1/5.3 scale and consists of five large sheets that clearly illustrate all structure as well as showing installation of flaps and retracts. The P-38 Lighting plan shows the installation of Robart retracts, servos and generic 3 cu in engine and features three piece wing. The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques are straightforward; easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. There are many online building threads at www.rcuniverse.com forums and www.rcscalebuilder.com forums for Nick’s plans. Tech support is also available via email at www.ziroliplans.com or by phone 9:00 to 5:00 Mon – Fri EST 631-467-4765. There is quality landing gear made by other manufacturers such as Sierra Giant Scale or Century Jet. If you choose gear or an engine not shown on the plans you should have them on hand when you start construction to make any changes needed for mounting. Nick Ziroli Plans recommends covering the airframe with1oz fiberglass cloth and ZAP Z-poxy finishing resin. Nick Ziroli designs are equally at home at the local sport flying field or the winner’s circle at prestigious scale events such as Top Gun and the Scale Master’s; you can add as much detail as you like. Nick Ziroli Plans has building and scale accessories available for the P-38 Lighting. Over the years, Nick’s designs have gained the enviable reputation for being among the most “flyable” giant scale models available.
