    Just wanted to say that I'm currently working on the ancient 1/48 Monogram P-61 and it's time for someone to come out with a new kit. Closing the canopy hatch is a nightmare - the fit is horrendous and being a clear part the filling and sanding is near impossible to do well. There's a replacement canopy set that costs $35 (the kit is $1 and I would tell you to buy it if you're going to build it with the hatch closed.

    I've got a couple I plan on building later. Have you seen the Zotz decals for this model? They look really nice. On the canopy, you can build up the gap with the black sprue to get a better fit. I have a thread on one I finished some time ago. Do you have a thread on it?

    In the realm of dog fighting, if it's a fair fight... you did something wrong.
