Olive Drab Widow
By johncpo41 September 17, 2013
I built this model several months ago and the enjoyment was great as I had built previous kits and lost them over time. I still believe that the details on this model far outreach some of todays by earlier standards of detailing. The cockpit and crew compartments are really well done for the time of Monogram way back when the model was first released. I built the kit straight from the box with no problems except that the wings needed support while being attached to the fuselage and that was a minor problem. All the other parts fit accordingly for such older molds. I again painted the model using all acrylic paints and used the Olive Drab theme as many reference photos showed the aircraft painted in that tone. Additionally I found that there was a version that actually carried a bomb on either wing and I copied what I thought was a close representation of that modification. Although an older model and re-released over time I found it to be a fun challenge.

P-61 Black Widow.
By skippykeesler August 12, 2013
I love this model,to me the black widow is second only to the German night fighters in appeal. I d id not experience the flash problems others have had,but my kit was an earlier production run,I have not opened my new one as just received it and have other projects on the bench.I did experience some minor fit problems but nothing major.Detailing I would say is excellent.Decals are good.This was a challenging and fun model to build and is an excellent canadiate for dioramas.And the really nice thing about this kit is the price.I plan on using some aftermarket accessories on my next one.All in all an excellent model,I would highly recommend it.

Black beauty
By mattkaiser1976 July 6, 2013
Lots of flash and ill-fitting parts. Required alot of patience and time to build and paint and correct. However, I'll still give it a good rating as there aren't many P-61 models out there and this one when finished with lots of TLC looks great on the shelf.
