  1. So well I'm kind of throwing myself in at the deep end with this P-61. The only model I built in recently was a Revell FW-190 F8 which was maliciously scarred and killed of by my skillful hands (something involving heat and trying to give paint that heat burned look, didn't work out...). So I'm back with attempt numero two. I absolutely love the P-61 and in my eyes it's an absolutely awe inspiring aircraft. Besides the kit I bought myself a number of books as reference and I will pay close attention to the MAAM website for reference regarding the structural design of the P-61. I am not exactly sure yet which aircraft I want to be building but I want it to be something special and a P-61 that you don't come across that often. I really want to do an olive drab aircraft so for instance the 'Lady Gen' P-61 A5 is a very suitable candidate. This again poses a few problems because Lady Gen is, well, turetless! Oh my I see you thinking, how awful! A turetless A5 is going to require some very serious changes to the HB P-61B kit so I'm going to take my time to look in to the required changes. The cockpit will be the first place to start and I will draw out my plans this week so you guys can see what I'm talking about. I will be using this topic as a major reference regarding the changes to be made: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=45567 I did unbox my kit and I have done some test fitting of the wings, engine nacelles and the crew nacelle. So far so good. The plane is absolutely huge. Compared to an FW-190 picture this: It's about twice the wingspan, 62cm in total! Pictures will follow soon because it doesn't all work this well on my phone. Thanks for checking in, I'm committed now!
  2. Hi, In addition to set of Northrops, which I posted recently along with BT-1 I've just cleaned a bit from dust my very old model, which was not posted yet - Northrop P61B Black Widow from Airfix. I did this machine sometime in 1981 or 1982. So a while ago... These days I painted transparent parts with varnish, which came to yellow with years, I am sorry to say. Markings are from 418th FS, USAAF, operating on South Pacific, 1944. The individual markings are home made, in particular there is a hand painted "nose art", which I still like - and perhaps this is the reason to show it... Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  3. Hi Perhaps somone know it... - Is there any aftermarket canopy for P61 Black Widow in 1/72 scale? I was googling and found only in 1/48... No hope at all? Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
