"poor fit on main canopy"
jimwoodward1943 (Broken Arrow, OK)
Poor fit on main canopy and poor instructions - Revell should do a better job on writing the assembly instructions or have a technical writer do their work for them. Assembly should be written in stages with better pics of the parts after put in place - I would recommend only for experience builders

"Great Airplane, lousy model"
pcsimonson1651
The P 61 was a great aircraft in it's day, and I like the way it looks, however the Monogram/Revell model kit is disgraceful. There are some nice details though few of them, but there are major fit issue with this kit. The clear parts for all the windows. and there are a lot of windows on this plane, do not fit right, in fact there are some rather big gaps. There are basically fit problems all over the kit. The only parts that fit together well were the wings half, and the fuselage half. The kit can be built but you must do a lot of sanding, cutting and puttying to get some of the parts to even line up. In summary, I bought this kit from a friend who had it sitting in his garage for some time, and I found out it is one of the old original Monogram kits. I paid $20 for it but it was not worth it. This particular kit should be around $12-$15 at the most. I like the 1/48 scale and have built the P47 from Revell, and it went together much better than the P61. I am now in the beginning stages of putting together the Revell B25J, and so far the fit seems pretty good.

 
"Not bad"
qxsp70
I built this kit with my brother as a kid and I thought I would give it a try as an adult for a trip down memory lane. While not a bad kit for a kid to through together and then use more as a toy, as an adult I had a few issues. I had a few minor fit issues and one wing was a little warped. However with some time I was able to make it into a model that was good enough for my amateur mind to find acceptable. Great value for the price

 
"Challenging Widow"

Is this a good kit? Yes. Is it good for the price? Absolutely! Will it eventually build into a nice kit? I think that depends upon your skill level. The fit is generally okay but count on some issues with at the wing root and with the rear boom. Flash is an issue. One of the maintainers has a hole in both his front and back. The canopy is a bit of a nightmare. Its great to have the options to have windows open, but....the fit, especially for the radar operators rear position was poor. I highly encourage you to put in the side windows for the radar operator before you put the fuselage together as its tough to get them in without marring the clear plastic. I had to pack weight into the nose (eliminating the change to leave the radar displayed AND the right side engine) to have her sit on the nose gear properly. That said, the final product is really cool. One could argue all day for flat or gloss black. I split the middle and painted overall semi-gloss with the rudders and flaps flat black showing more distress. I also highlighted with silver for wear and tear on the wing leading edges and areas where maintenance would work, especially those open engine covers. Finally the decals with my kit didn't have the red lines for the upper wing area. Hopefully mine was a mistake, and if needed, you could paint them but...putting those decals down requires some experience and patience. So, this kit has its challenges, and you will be potentially frustrated, but stick with it - this is a beautiful kit when completed. As always, HAVE FUN (and mutter under your breath about the canopy issues).

Information

A longtime favorite with modelers, the Black Widow was the foremost American night fighter in WWII. This huge, black, 38,000 lb. airplane is complete with removable nose, radar, engine, detailed cockpits and rotating top turret.
