Mine only came with that same decal sheet. The kit contains landing gear and wheels. I left mine off as I fly from a grass field. Hand launch and landings are super easy even with the three bladed props. I highly recommend this kit if you have wanted a P-38 for a long time like I did. Here are some pictures from today thanks to Latinflyer and our mutual friend Mr. T.

What a waste. This P-38 kit has the most scale looking landing gear and wheel for P-38 if it has the same landing gear and wheels as the original EMI kit.

The wheels are exact scale size and shape very thick. They can be used to take off and land on short grass no problem. I have seen several video showing grass take off and landing.

Kasra-GREAT pics!

How does the speed compare against the 3 bladers and two blader props please?

Congrats on getting superb inflight pics

Matt, Sorry, I meant the same logo and insignia are on both sheets. These seem to be pretty nice decals. I think the plane is faster with the two bladed props. LF and I will have to try a full throttle match up.

Shschon, The kit comes with very nice landing gear set including the scale wheels and steerable nose gear option. I like the looks of the retracted gear on a scale warbird and the lighter weight. I should have been more clear.

Thanks for detailed picture.

I have a question, though. Does it come with prop and prop adaptor? How do the spinners get installed? I recall the original EMI design the spinner is only good for GWS gearbox type shaft and not easy to install using normal collet type prop adaptor. Also are the spinneres precut for 2 blade or not cut yet so you can cut it yourself for 3 blade prop?

It does come with an adaptor to fit the spinner and supplied brushless motor.It also has ply disks to assist with mounting the spinners,it really was a pain with the previous incarnation of this model.

Not sure if the spinners are precut yet,I haven't removed them from their packets.
Can't check right now,I'm at work, I'll let you know as soon as I can.

Anyone know what those 3 bladers are? Are they the MAS ones, if so, I need to get a couple,it looks great with them on.

Thanks for the extra flight pic kasra, looks great

Spinners are precut for two bladed props.

FSK three bladed narrow chord props. They draw 10 Amps each on 3 cells.

Where did you get the 3 blade spinners to use with FSK 3 blade props?
