Hi all,
A while back a friend sent me a started MPC (Airfix) 1/72 Northrop P-61 Black Widow, which went right into the stash because I had no clue what to do with it.

Then I had a bright* idea.

Presenting a WW2 Royal Air Force nightfighter you may not have heard much of, the Turbinlite-equipped Northrop Prowler NF.I!

Oooh!

My RAF P-61 idea has always been radar-equipped (so basically just a paint job), a Turbinlite version though has never ever crossed my mind.

That paint scheme suits the P-61 well.  :thumbsup:

It does indeed  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

I've always struggled with what to do with the P-61 in the stash, never, ever thought of that  :bow:

Thank you folks! As I said, receiving this kit kinda knocked me back because I had absolutely no clue what to do. Then about two months ago I started looking at the Turbinlite and asked myself what kit do I have that could suit having one up front...
