Lady in the Night..Hobby Boss P-61B Black Widow

Recommended Posts

Hey, I built an old Widow a long time ago too  :whistle:

Boxart nailed me :popcorn:

 

Yup, I built this one too when it first came out.

 

I tried the Monogram release later, and unlike their famous 1/48 B-17G and B-29's I found it tedious.

 

Since the old Aurora kit builds up so simply, I bought another old Aurora kit for around $50.00, along with some AM decals, etc., started to build it as a "wheels-up", since their wheel wells were non-existent.

 

Then I found it is now worth around $200.00, so now it sits with my "unbuilt golden oldies" section in my hobby room along with others. <_<

 

Now I am curious how well the Hobby Boss kit does. :popcorn:

Unfortunately this build is stalled, I am having trouble finding the rear cockpit section and the upper turret, both are out of stock at their respective makers, so now it's a waiting game to see if it ever shows up

If I can't find the relish turret, I may be able to source one from Lone Star Models, or possible even build one with the blanking plate. I could also possibly use an Eduard set for the rear radar starption, but still holding out hope for the resin parts.

Type P-61 1/32 on Ebay. You will find individual sprues for sale. You should find what you need.

Good news, I was able to find the Radar station and gun barrels top and bottom at Hannants UK. The bad news is, they cost me a lot of money. Now all I need is to hunt down an upper turret.

They came back in stock with Relish today, just got the email for the stock alert. 

Yes, as my luck would have it, I ordered one from Lone Star Models this morning, then only a few hours later, I got the email. Oh well, I ordered them both, now I have a spare. Good news is, I now have everything I need to build it including brass cannon and machine gun barrels. Hopefully I will have everything in a couple weeks!
