    Hello,
    Does anybofy knows if some P-38 Lightnings (equiped with guns) were existing with a shark mouth and without any D-Days stripes ?
    I own a 1:18 P-38 (I'm sure you'll guess the manufacturer...) who is totally in metal finish with only a shark mouth on it.
    Any picture would help me.
    Thx to all.

    I'm not sure but maybe these could be helpful.
    Source unknown.

    Thanks Wurger,
    From any information we learn something...
    In my case the shark mouth is painted on the nose's aircraft. What I find strange is that standard black painting on top of nose and engines is missing.
    The pilot should have wear good Ray-Ban sunglasses to fly it !!
    I've got now a picture of this P-38 Lightning. "Louise" is also written on each engine compartments.
    It's written on it that it's a P-38L-5-LO type.
    I'll check if that is at least correct...
