US P-61B Black Widow night fighter aircraft model kit 1/72DML Dragon
The improved P-61B featured more effective SCR-720C A/I radar and a slightly lengthened nacelle. To enhance its night-fighting capability, night-vision binoculars were combined with an optical gunsight. The standard procedure was for Black Widow pilots to use their onboard radar to plot intercepting courses when pursuing an enemy aircraft. The pilot then used visual identification to attack his target.
Dragon’s kit builds upon the accurate foundation of its previous P-61 kit, but it features numerous improvements to allow modelers to assemble an extremely accurate model. This Premium Edition kit has an array of newly designed photo-etched parts to upgrade details and improve the aircraft’s look.
- Pilot's seatbelt upgraded by photo-etched parts
- Under-wing dipole antennas w/photo-etched parts
- Detailed cockpit
- Canopy made from clear parts
