Black Widow P-61 #RL0108
Black Widow P-61
Mlitary Aircraft

 The Northrop P-61 heavy fighter was the aircraft that struck the last blow against enemy aircraft in World War II.  Powered by two Pratt & Whitney 2,000 horsepower radial engines, the P-61 nicknamed the "black widow" carried a pilot, gunner and radar operator. The P-61 carried four .50 caliber machine guns in a turret on top of the fuselage and four 20 mm cannon mounted on the underside of the aircraft.  Operated primarily at night, once the P-61 locked its radar in on an unsuspecting enemy aircraft, the outcome was usually lethal.  The P-61 was 50 feet long and had a wingspan of 66 feet making it the heaviest American pursuit aircraft flown by the United States Army Air Corps during World War II.  This older, Black Widow P-61 includes the following features: 1) Authentic markings either for a P-61 A with olive & gray paint scheme as flown by the 9th Air Force, 422nd Night Fighter Squadron or as a solid-black P-61 B flown by Air Force Ace Major Carroll C. Smith of the 418th Night Fighter Squadron; 2) Clear plastic cockpit and fuselage glass areas; 3) Detailed cockpit; 4) Detailed gun compartment; 5) Detailed radar compartment; 6) Engine nacelles with removable cover plates; 7) Machine guns turn and elevate; 8) Molded in color; 9) Propellers spin; 10) Recessed panel lines; 11) Painting guide and 12) Illustrated assembly instructions.  The box is in excellent condition.  Never started and factory sealed.
