First Look


The Avionix P-61B Black Widow Radar Ops Station set for the Hobby Boss 1/32nd kit consists of 20 resin parts that are molded to perfection. The detail on each part is perfect. No voids or bubbles are present. The casting blocks are small and will be easy to remove.

The parts that are included are:

  • Main electronics shelf
  • Lower Radar bulkhead
  • Scope hood
  • Black box
  • Gunners seat armrest X2
  • Gunners seat bucket
  • Gunners seat back
  • Gunners seat frame
  • Gunners seat base
  • Gun sight swivel base
  • Gun sight mounting post
  • Sight body
  • Sight grip right
  • Sight grip left
  • Sight adjustment block
  • Sight mounting arm
  • Gun sight
  • Sight adjustment wheel X2

This set has some of the best detail that I have ever seen in ANY resin set. It is simply a work of art.

My sincere thanks to Squadron/MMD for this review sample!
