Profile 38Fly the Fork-Tailed Devil!

Born in a time before twin-engine airplanes were fully accepted, WWII's P-38 brought many "firsts"...including a nonstop range of over 3,000 miles. It could outrun, outclimb, AND outdive the Japanese Zero. Great Planes captures the great fighter's strength and style in this compact profile kit — a snap for sport pilots to build and fly.

  • Performance excels with economical .15-size engines — fast, maneuverable, and easy to control even with one engine out.

  • CAD designed wood parts interlock perfectly — ABS pieces are ready to cut, paint and install.

  • Features tricycle landing gear like the full-size fighter, with a steerable nose wheel controlled by a standard servo in the center pod.

  • Efficient throttle and rudder linkages require just one standard servo each, minimizing radio system costs.

Two economical .15 cu in engines give the Profile 38 impressive speed and muscle. Each engine has its own fuel tank and lines for fast refueling and maintenance.

"It's thrilling enough to fly a twin, let alone one that looks like the legendary P-38. This kit makes it easy and affordable — while packing in so much detail and dimension, you may just forget that you're piloting a profile!"
