Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$179

In 1946 they added plastic injection molded kits to the line and were possibly the first injection molded kit manufacture in the USA. When Hawk made an early jump to all-plastic kits they kept the 1/48 scale and created these new one-piece boxes with two color artwork.

A thrust ratio of greater than 1:1 was achieved, and tests began in 1956. The design did fly and stole the show at Le Bourget in June 1957. However, like the Lockheed Pogo, it proved to be dangerous and quite a handful to fly.
