Damn John, you are a model building machine! You could probably burn through my stash in less than a year. I can’t wait to start seeing pictures on this build.

This should be good, I once started a 1/48 P-61 but gave up so it will be nice to follow a 1/32 scale one.

 

Cheers

Excellent.   My build from a few years ago suffered from a catastrophic superglue accident...it was bad.

 

I've since replaced it, and obtained assorted AM.  One of these days, the Virgin Widow will be done.

Good luck. Really is a good kit despite its critics. Tolerances are very tight though . Even a cost of paint, let alone all those am goodies can cause fit issues. Still looks spectacular once on the shelf though.

It will not be a quick build for sure. Hopefully it will be done in a couple of months. :shrug:

Interested to see how you go. I have my internals in undercoat (Avionix resin) have shortened the nose.
I consider the Eduard pe essential for the extended floor (Hobby Boss has the floor finish too short behind the pilot) and also for the canopy fittings.
