Product Details


Designed by famed aeronautical engineer Kelly Johnson, the P-38J “Putt Putt Maru” was the P-38J flown by Col. Charles McDonald, fighter ace and commander of the 475th Fighter Squadron. The P-38 was developed in response to a 1937 request from the Army Air Corps for a twin-engine interceptor that could climb to 20,000 feet in six minutes and have a top speed of 360 mph. Top speed of the P-38 was 448 mph for the P-38L model. Armament included four .50-caliber machine guns, a 20mm cannon and provisions for underwing rockets or bombs.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
