If any one is interested, I have pictures to post.
I thought the members here might wish to know about this.

The man, Mr. Jim O'Hara is a Professor of Aeronautical Engineering, apparently.
He become a pilot at 60 years of age, and for the next several years designed in computer drafting the plans of the aircraft he and his wife spent the last 15 years building.

To look at the aircraft absent people around it, one would swear one was looking at the genuine P38.
It is truly a wonderful achievement, and beautiful to see.

Kind Regards, Uyraell.

Would love to see the Pictures of the P-38 Replica. If it is the one I think it is, I'm hoping he will put it out as a Kit soon.

OB

Once I extract them from the older computer they are on, I'm more than happy to post the images.
Bear in mind though, that despite the gentleman having expressed both wish and intent to publish his construction plans for the replica P38, I have not since then seen confirmatory information of such plans being published.

Respectful Regards OBwanBD5, Uyraell.
