Soviet P38 Lightnings?
I was wondering if anyone here has any details regarding the sending of Lend-Lease P38 Lightnings to the USSR in WW2,even just evidence to confirm tht P38's WERE sent there. Details and documentation on the subject seem to be a bit sketchy,and I've heard very little about Soviet use of the P38 in action. I've hunted high and low on the net and not found anything on Russian Lightnings,and can't find any reference to them in my 'library'.
The most solid evidence I've ever come accross is a story about a VVS pilot who crashed two examples on take off during a scramble,before finally succeeding in a third!
Aswell as just wanting to know out of curiosity,I'm also building a 1:72 scale model of a P38 and a Russian scheme would be something a bit different from the norm.
