Styling question: use spit mk XVI canopy (above) or 1/144 phantom canopy (below). The stabilos are to be trimmed to fit...;-)

The business end: B-29 props fit perfectly and top it of with some mossie spinners (4 bladed).

Njoy!

I prefer the Spit canopy but the Toom canopy looks a little lower, which is more in line with the racing aesthetic.

Good looking little beastie, so far. :thumbsup:

Ahem, the Black Widow here is very different from an elongated P-61 (see below), congratulations in inventing new shapes! :thumbsup:

Hahaha thanks gentlemen!

@old Wombat: Ok, the Toom's canopy it'll be!
@ Tophe& Jalles: Thanks and the body shape is more Pond racer but in size it's more P-61. So a mix and match. The name was found as decal from an 1/25 Gasser style hotrod. The resemblance occurred to me later when you posted the drawing of the P-61 fast freighter version    :wacko:

That is absolutely gorgeous!   :wub:  Though I do think it might need a tad more rudder if an engine quits...

What are the materials?

Title: Re: "Black widow" unlimited Razr
Post by: 63cpe on December 30, 2018, 02:37:41 pm
Thanks gentlemen!
I didn't know that Miles design! The resemblance is cunning!

@AeroplaneDriver: The are going to be extra rudders on the end of each boom. They'll be put on once psr is done. otherwize too fragile..
Parts used are: Heller Constellation engines, XFY-1 intakes, 1/100 DC-9 wings, 1/144 White knight two fuselage turned upside down/ tail cut off and turned 180 degrees, Balsa wood for the booms, 4x F-84 tailplanes (to get the correct length), some styrene and a 1/144 F-4 canopy.
