This is another commission build using Dragon’s 1/72 P-61A/P-61B Black Widow Night Fighter. The client is a huge fan of the P-61 and really liked the 1/48 scale I built last year. He wants a 1/72 version in a case for his desk. For this build I will be using the Ares resin cockpit detail set, Eduard’s exterior photo etch set, Quickboost resin engines, Quickboost resin gun barrels for the upper turret, and Print and Scale decal set. Once built, the aircraft will be mounted in an acrylic display case to protect it. I spent the week assembling and detailing the resin cockpit and radar sections. I am currently working on the main fuselage details so I can mount the cockpit and radar station.
