"P-61 Fun"
parisfrisby (Prescott Valley, AZ)
This is one fun build. The parts fit pretty good, nothing a little work can't fix, and the detail is more than satisfactory. The size is impressive so make sure you got the space to display it.! The canopy is a challenge to mask and paint but that is what the hobby is all about. A crew is included which is a nice touch. I really liked this kit and believe that any problems can be overcome with a little patience.

"Olive Drab Widow"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
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.

Very simple: Yes-this is the most affordable P-61 in this scale, No-it isn't worth the money. The kit is Revell at its worst, the engines don't match, wings and fuselage do not fit together the amount of putty and time it takes to build this is not worth the end product. You can buy for instance, other manufacture's kits for under $20 and the quality is 10 times as good. Cost can no longer be an excuse for this poor of a kit. I have been building Revell aircraft you years, I normally tolerate the 70's mold's flaws, but not this time.

 
"P-61 Black Widow."
skippykeesler (Wood River Ill)
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.

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.
