Very sharp looking!

There was an unarmed NMF P-61 in the Pacific theatre.  It was used as the personal transport of some commander.  I can't recall his name or rank.

I build 1/48 scale WW2 fighters.

Have fun.

It's definitely one of a kind. Not to be a rivet counter, but the nose cone was fiberglass.

Yes I heard that but if I painted it tan it might look funny

Oh! Man! That is very nicely done.  I love the expression of the folded wings.  Truly, a work of art! 

Your Friend, Toshi & Ezra

P.S. I have yet to build an aircraft with folded wings.  Maybe I’ll build the TBF Avenger in this manner.  Very inspiring!

Both are extremely well done!

I like the shiny P-61, which kit is that?
