Following the enormous success of their first aircraft kit, the Fw 189, there's been intense speculation about what Great Wall Hobby would follow it up with.
Well, thanks to Guido Hopp, we can bring you CAD images of their next quarterscale kit - the Northrop P-61 Black Widow. The aircraft has been high on modellers' wish lists for years to be given the full modern new-tool treatment and, judging by the shots here, Great Wall Hobby's looks set to be a real beauty.

The planned release date is next month, and of course we'll bring you full details of price and availability as soon as we have them.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AEROSCALE.

P-61: It's black and it's ugly. And i just don't do black and ugly. Accurate...innacurate, who cares? It's black and ugly.

Black: it's the new black. Haven't you heard? Black is beautiful. p.s. Andrew: totally off-topic, but have you posted pics of your JJ Model's "Sarah"?

Andrew, I can't believe that those came from a fellow Victorian. Hang your head in shame. Big, Black (occasionally OD/NG) and SEXY. No further correspondence shall be entered into on this matter.

Damien I'm guessing the Dragon 1/72 P-61 is a reasonable kit but I'm sure GWH might do better and they'd throw in some mask and etch and it probably wont be any more expensive thanks Mike

[/quote] You are correct...they did, of course, come in OD/NG as well. OD/NG isn't so bad, so maybe i could one after all.

There's really not much to post of Sarah at this point, she's together, primed and has had the basic skin tone sprayed on and that's it. She's been put aside for a while as i've upped my ambitions on this one a bit. I intend to base her on a real life lady i know who resembles the figure to a remarkable degree- she models latex fetish wear after all. Currently she is having some very intricate and extensive tattoo work done on her back that i'm going to actually attempt to replicate to some degree. I'll be experimenting with photoshop and laser decal paper and possibly a type of decoupage technique- where you print a reverse image and then bond it to the surace with varnish and then wet the paper and rub it away...leaving just the ink (hopefully). Wish me luck!

Dear Mr GWH. Would it be possible for you to pantograph this one up to 1/32 scale? Pretty please with sugar on top? I am more than happy to ignore the non-existent total disaster... Kindest Regards Warren

Hi, Warren! I dare say it is very unlikely. However it i still possible that WingSacle takes off one fine day and they had a Widow announced in superscale. Keep hope alive! Cheers, Guidoi

I've put in an "expression of interest" with WingXL (the new improved Wingscale) which is effectively a pre-order for the thirty-tooth Black Widow, reserving one (or 3 or 4 if the wife isn't watching too closely) for me when it is released. PM me if you want the email address. Cheers, D
