That is a spectacular profile! Makes me want to build it.

Great concept which warrants a styrene likeness being built.

For pacific theater part of Luft 46  ???

Thanks, finsrin!  You could actually build this one.  With an F-15A Reporter or XP-61E conversion kit, you could do a pretty straightforward one.

I think I'll be able to do at least one for Luft '46.

If you're planning on some schemes for that beauitful bird, can I suggest Russian VVS?  Would be perfect for Siberian patrols.

Hmm, maybe a Soviet one later, but a service aircraft might be a bit tougher to manage...


Thanks everyone for the very kind words!  I hope you will like some of those that I'll be doing later, too!  The next profile shouldn't take quite as long to do.  ;)

Cheers,

Logan

Mike West over at Lone Star Models has created a P-61E conversion kit in 1/72 and 1/48.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

So, to model this we'd keep the 20mm cannon in the belly and install .50 cal. machine guns in the nose?  I presume a quartet of them?

Actually, this one has both.  4x .50s and 4x 20mm.

Yes, you'd need to keep the belly guns too. The first prototype P-61E had it arranged in a square, the second and future production has it like we have here, with the center two higher, like this: _--_

I'm working on the nose markings for the first service one we're doing. I think it's going to rock you all.

In case anyone was wondering Adobe Photoshop CS5 doesn't handle right-to-left languages very well. Fun times.   ::)
