Postage Stamp – 1/115 Lockheed P-38J Lightning Marge Richard Ira Bong

With its distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle, the Lockheed P-38 Lightning was a multi-purpose fighter aircraft used by the US Air Force during World War II. Its mission roles included interception, dive bombing, level bombing, ground strafing, close air support, and photo reconnaissance missions; it was used extensively as a long-range escort fighter.

This model is a replica of the P-38 piloted by Richard Ira “Dick” Bong, the highest scoring US air ace in World War II, with a tally of 40 Japanese planes shot down. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his victories.

This diecast metal airplane model comes in 1:115 scale with plastic stand and is approximately 4 inches (10.2cm) long with a 5 1/2 inch (14cm) wingspan.
