Yeh Mike, pretty cool looking airplane.. I picked up 2 GWS 109 slopers, I plan on hacking them up soon...

Mr. Lin - What would it take to get some "spy shots" of what the GWS-38 may look like?

this is a very nice scale p 38 . $200 it's a bit much. http://www.hobby-lobby.com/p-38.htm

Yeh, hopefully, the GWS-38 won't be $200.. Probably won't be as close to scale however, I'm sure it will look decent..

Are you aware that with a couple of extentions to the wing tips that the Me 109 wing would make a passable P38 lightning wing. Cut the fuselage and the booms from blocks of foam and use two CD-ROM motors and you would have a nifty little 42 inch span park flier. Two CD-ROM motors will run on one Castle Creations Phoenix 10 ESC. See this thread.

I have a good twin engine training plane for you until the the GWS-38 comes out. I took a GWS BN2 Islander & modified it to accept (2) Johnson 250 motors & MAN is this plane FAST!! If & when the GWS38 comes out, I will be eyeballing the J250's for it if it is not too heavy.

P.S. - I am also flying a 21 OZ GWS A10 (Pusher) with (2) Johnson 250 motors with decent results.

I run my twin J250's on either a GWS EP-4025 Prop (6 Amps Draw) or a EP-4040 prop (8 Amps draw) per motor that is of course. You will get more speed with the EP-4040 but I like the EP-4025 as it has better thrust at slightly less speed. However, it doesn't matter on the BN2, the EP-4025 is plenty fast & 12 Amps is not a big deal for my Polyquest 1800-2S Lipo pack. I get lots of grins from people when they see the BN2 ZIP around the field, it's probably faster than a wing.

P.S. - Not to Hijack the thread but I have a good story about the Johnson 250 Motor. At work I have a battery powered pencil sharpener on my desk & some of my coworkers like to sneak in my office & use my pencil shapener. Well, the motor finally burned out & I brought it home for repair but the only brushed motors I had were Johnson 250's. Yep, you guessed it I now have the world's only Johnson 250 powered pencil shapener. Now my coworkers kinda jump back a little when they stick that pencil in & it sure gnaws it down in a hurry! Tim the Tool Man Taylor would be proud! Arrr Arr!

F-82 Twin Mustang would be cool.

http://www.wpafb.af.mil/museum/research/fighter/f82.htm

During the Korean Conflict, Japan-based F-82s were among the first USAF aircraft to operate over Korea. The first three North Korean airplanes destroyed by U.S. forces were shot down by all-weather F-82G interceptors on June 27, 1950.

I hope they come up with clever idea of make the plane disassemble into several smaller pieces for storage and transporation.

P-38 is a large plane and its shape takes a lot a space. If GWS 38 fighter is still one piece glued they are sure to lose lots of buyers since they simply do not have the room to store it nor big enough car to carry them to flying fields.
