Back in December 2016, researcher, historian and hobbyist, Pierre Lagacé offered to construct a model of the P-61 Black Widow from WWII for me. The Northrop aircraft had operated around the SW Pacific during Smitty’s tour on the ground, which only increased my interest. To read a first-hand account of a P-61 in action:
I am not living in the past. I am just remembering the past.
Remembering is something I just can’t over with just like writing about the past.
This is an update about my P-61 Black Widow I built which someone will always remember.
It all started when I asked my readers to choose the next project. The Black Widow won hands down.
It was GP’s favorite plane…
Then I had this plan about GP’s favorite plane.
Packing the Black Widow and shipping it to GP in a box within a box.
I did not have time to take pictures on how I packed it so I asked GP to take pictures.
This is the end result.
The box within the box
The Black Widow arrived safety except for a broken strut which GP repaired gingerly.
Next time on this blog…
