    Your photography skills might be as good as your modeling ones. Good job!

    All great aircraft that have been often modeled. Perhaps a rare one is the P-61 Black Widow nightfighter by Northrop. Especially the last model made at the end of WWII the P-61C . It was a beautiful twin boom, twin engine fighter that was faster than the P-38 and extremely agile,
    Oh no it wasn't noted for its agility, nor was it as fast as the P-38. It was massive, heavy and designed for long duration aloft.
    armed with 4ea 50.cal machine guns and 4ea 20mm cannon. This fighter was one of the two fighters that used tricycle landing gear, the other being the P-39 Aircobra
    Trikes in the P- series during WW2 were the P-38 Lightning, P-39 Airacobra, P-61 Black Widow and the P-70 Havoc.

    Thanks Texas,Ironduke....Unfortunatly thats all the pictures remaining of that B29 .Ihad the plane finnished.Itook one more picture after I hung it from ceiling in my den,unfortunatly the plane and many more perished in the fire along with most of the pictures. It would not count in the contest as the model is from the korean war period not WW2. Thanks for the comments any how.

    hobogeo, if you can, you should try to retake the picture in better lighting. It's still eligible, but presentation is half of it. :)
