First Look

True Details is one of many brand names produced and sold by Squadron Mail Order. In this release, they've developed an interesting detail/correction set for the Great Wall Hobbies P-61 Black Widow kits. Cast in light gray resin, this set provides two cowlings, two engine reduction gear housings, two sets of magnetos, two spinners, and two sets of corrected Curtiss Electric propellers.

P-61A/B Propeller and Cowling Set

The cowlings in this set correct the shape of the kit cowings as well as the gear box and propeller blade shapes. This set is designed to work with any of the Great Wall Hobbies 1/48 P-61A or P-61B Black Widow releases and these parts are drop-in ready for your project.

My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
