Definitetly looks like Locheeds policy of threatening legal action is leading to a state where the only way to get a P38 is to pay big bucks or to make your own from scratch.

This morning I started on the working drawings for a F4 the Photo Reconasance version that flew, with the RAAF, from Comarlie Creek airstrip 400 miles south of here.

This model will be build from 1 inch thick foam sheet using only hand tools and emery paper. The outline will be cut with a box cutter and then rough shaped with the blade. Course grit emery paper is used to rough sand and then progressivly finer paper is used untill the final finish. I will do a build thread in Foamies. I'm going to call it a "Nota 38"
