    Hi everyone,

    It is my first post in this forum. I'm starting a P-38M in 1/48 scale (Hasegawa + Paragon Designs conversion set). I was checking my references and I found in one, that radar operator compartment had no seat. He was seated on the floor with bulletproof plate on his back. That's true? I need to know this because Paragon set includes a seat, so I will need to remove it and detail this comparment :shock:

    I hope somebody has this information.

    Thanks in advance,
    Guillermo

    Flyboy,

    Thank you for your help, I find two photos that I have never seen them before. I will be looking for more information.

    If I could do something for you, just let me know.

    See you
