This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

As the Air Forces of each country began to utilize night bombing, a series of night fighters were put into use to combat the threat. The American Army Air Force started its night fighter program in 1940, using the P-70 Havoc and Beaufighter to fight with the Japanese until the first 45 P-61 Black Widows entered active service in October 1943.

With the introduction of the more powerful SCR-720C Airborne Intercept radar the P-61s of the Army were upgraded and designated as the P-61B. The type B also lengthened the nose section and reintroduced the dorsal turret on the late production aircraft.

Includes markings for:
  • USAAF, 547th Night Fighter Squadron, P-61B-1-NO "Swing Shift Skipper", 239440 (42-39440)
  • USAAF, 6th Night Fighter Squadron, P-61B-2-NO "Sleepy Time Gal II", 239414 (42-39414)
