Frog 1/72 P-61 Black Widow… 19 effing 65 baby! (Part 1)

Posted by Rob on Apr 18, 2015 in Modelling Frog-spawn |

My entry for a nightfighter┬áSIG on Flory models… something ancient. I got this mad idea to do all SIGs and GBs this year with Ye Olde Dogs of a kit… (except the Egg-plane fest… might do something special for that one..)

Ye Olde Box!

Savvy folks among you might have noticed the lack of top turret on this one. But I will probably scratchbuild that.

Ye Olde Plans!

‘Splodey-view FTW!

Ye Olde Pile’o’Parts!

The kit was like that when I picked it up at a model show aaaages ago. Looks like several of the previous owners unpacked, examined and repacked it all. But I think it’s complete.

Dryfit of the main hull with the clear parts, which are very nice considering the age of the kit.

As you see; no top turret. But I am sure I can bash something together. The interior as provided is very sparse too, but my mate indeed still has the Airwaves PE set (for the Dragon kit) and I am going to use that to make something. But that will have to wait until after X-mas, since I won’t be seeing my mate until then.

He also had some Black Widow decals left over from a Nightfighter set I could have to replace the sad little roll of decals that didn’t survive all the years…

But! I can crack on with the rest of the kit, starting with the wings…
