BH has the V2, look at the title of the P-38 and you'll clearly see V2 right after BZ-38.
Also, check the bottom of the page and read the specs...the V1 doesn't have servoless retracts.
The V1/V2 discussion and where to get them both is all over this thread in previous posts.
Either way, Hobbyking is still selling the V1 and Banana Hobby is selling the V2.

After...

...and the birth of "Jersey Girl" (she has a, ever so slight bent nose; mob reference for those not old enough.)

It took me 2.5 months, but she turned out pretty good.

That is truly amazing! Looks better than original! Foamies can take a beating and with some love and motivation can come back to life. This is the best job I've seen!
I've had to resurect my Airfield T-28 twice already and (not as good a job as this) but with a little distance it looks fine. Great Job. I have the P-38 coming for Christmas and can't wait to build mine.
