So for the GB I'll be attempting this kit: Seems I have a love for odd looking, twin boom / twin bodied aircraft, so this will be in fine company with my recently built and similarly black F-82 Twin Mustang. I've got a few after market bits - a set of Print Scale decals, plus some Eduard canopy masks and their small interior PE kit. In terms of Journey's End, according to Wikipedia: So I might do that decal option from the pack or maybe "Cooper's Snooper" (P-61B-2 42-39454 flown by 1 Lt George C Cooper, 548th NFS, Iwo Jima, Spring 1945) since I like the look of the nose art. I've got 3 other GB builds to do first, so you might have to wait a while for the sprue shots and build start!
Hello all; I present here my recently completed GWH P-61. The short version is that I really enjoyed this one and think it came out quite well. The only missing is the drop tanks; inexplicably they are missing from the kit (or at least missing from mine) and one day I'll add some. All comments welcome! The long version of the story, with more pics, can be found on my website, making-history.ca Cheers; Mark.

There are parts for the turrets and many internal features. New sides are provided for the inside of the gunners station. A new entry hatch is provided, as many internal parts. Zoom!
