Detail & Scale's coverage of the Lightning began with the P-38 Lightning in Detail & Scale, Part 1, Detail & Scale Volume 57. That book covered the XP-38 experimental prototype, the YP-38 developmental prototypes, and all production versions up through the P--38H. F-4, F-4A, and F-5A photographic reconnaissance versions were also included. In this second part, the P-38J and P-38L production versions, the P-38M night fighter conversion, and the remaining photo recon variants are covered. The P-38J Droop Snoot and P-38L Pathfinder special purpose aircraft are likewise included.
