Building Tips for The 48th Scale P-61 Black Widow

Recommended Posts

It arrived today. Nice metal weights. Why is there a gunner station in the radar operator's position? No open cowl flaps. 1 row of cylinders. Didn't open the canopy but the clear parts are nicely padded and separately bagged. or dry fit anything. Looking forward to an expert review. If it was $25, I'd like it a bit more.

I am just about done building mine and the clear parts were a Major problem!I had to use 2 part epoxy to close the substantial gaps and the major assemblies needed lots of putty.I also had to fill the longer nose cap with lead bird shot in an epoxy matrix to prevent tail sitting.I decided to paint it with Alclad Chrome over a gloss black base coat.Really impressed with the results! 1461986185229_zpsbmioh0z5.jpg
