36602 Corgi   P-38J Lightning Droop Snoot - Eze Does It, 20th FS, USAAF LE £ 0.00
      Out of stock
     
  Corgi US36602 P-38J "Droop Snoot" Lightning in the superb D-Day markings of "EZE DOES IT" of the 77th Fighter Squadron, 20th Fighter Group, as flown by pilot Captain Herschel "Easy" Ezell Jr from Kings Cliffe during June 1944. The Droop Snoot was a P-38 converted to have a glass nose with a bomb sight and bombardier inside. This was done so they could lead larger formations of fighter bombers on single pass bomb runs over heavily defended enemy airfields. Mint and boxed 1/72 scale limited edition of 4,730 pieces. Displays superbly, has to be seen to be appreciated. Box lid has a light indented line in the top left corner but nothing that detracts badly.
