"Black, Black Widow"
This sits in the middle of my collection for a reason, it was enormously enjoyable to build and looks fantastic. It has a plethora of detail over the entire model, everything was relatively easy to install, only frustrating things were the back windows, they took some work to get in place without covering them in glue. The decals for the red stripes made no logical sense unless you cut them to length, so I skipped them and painted the red stripes on instead. Like I said, I loved building this, it was fun from the first to the last, lots of detail to keep you interested through what turned out to be a lengthy build, I would definately recommend this set.

"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.

I have been gifted this kit 3 times in the past. after the 1st 2 I wondering if people hated me. the first 2 attempts nothing fit right. form warped parts to wings and fuselage halves longer that the others. the 3rd time my kids gave it to me and I had to build it. the 3rd kit turned out great. everything fit, no putty and it looks fantastic. buy it at your own risk. you may get lucky.

"bargain price for this level of detail."
this kit has huge potential. an experienced modeler can cope with the few issues i encountered, but i can see how less experienced ones might go off the rails. overall, i had a blast building this model. i love picking out details with paint and you get plenty right out of the box here.there is not an over-abundance of parts, but that makes it move along at a fun pace. parts fit was generally good, but if you want to display the forward canopy top closed, like i did, you need to widen it with strips of plastic and fill some minor gaps. also, make sure you install the front gear bay floor before you join the fuselage halves, or you will risk splitting it open prying it to get it in there. this was the only real issue i found in the instructions. the decals were pretty good, except the red and yellow stencil decals virtually disappeared over the black paint. i removed mine since they didn't show at all except for a shiny spot. engine nacelles usually are notorious for poor fit at the main wing, but i found these almost a pleasure, with almost no gaps at all. in fact, bodywork on this model was minimal and pretty easy. some filler and sanding and primer were used, but none to excessive levels. i find it hard to knock this kit and actually found myself praising it often while building it and showing it off. everyone who sees it loves it, as do i. i highly recommend it to anyone with patience and at least some modelling skill, or assisted by someone with those skills. the results are very satisfying and rewarding.


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.
