Lockheed P-38L Lightning - Fuerza Aerea Hondureña -

Forgotten Lightnings Part 2

---skin for P-38L by Wolf257---

size: 2048x2048 (main .bmp, others in 512x512 and 256x256)



-------------------Historical notes-----------

After the Rio Treaty (1947) seven P-38L (and also 5 P-63E, but this is another story...) were delivered to Honduras.

The Lightning was used in combat for the last time during the brief Honduras-Nicaragua Border Conflict (1957), and retired from service in 1958.


Aircrafts serials:


501 crashed on May, 13, 1955


503 ex 44-53095, c/n 422-8350, later 506

503 ex 44-53097, c/n 422-8352, delivered on July 1954

504 ex 44-26961, c/n 422-7965

505 ex 44-53232, c/n 422-8487

Unzip the skin in a temporany folder.

Drop the "FAH" folder in your P-38L installation



(remember: backup originals files!)


1:Open P-38L_data.ini and change:


ServiceEndYear=1945 to ServiceEndYear=1958


save and close.


The last Lightning flew in 1958, with Fuerza Aérea Hondureña...


2: Alternative texture

Just copy the content of "White Nose" or "Normal Nose"

in the main FAH skin folder.




Templates: by me, but based upon original Wolf257's skin.

Wrench's 80th FS "Uncle Cy's Angel" skin, for correct position of nose and fuselage antiglare panels.

Note: 38gascap.tga and 38gascap2.tga made by Wolf257.
