Special Hobby Northrop XP-56 Black Bullet in 1/72 Scale

This is the Special Hobby kit of the second prototype of the Northrop XP-56 Black Bullet.  The design proved to be unstable and was not ordered into production. I found this one on sale and it was just too unusual to pass up.  The kit is what you’d expect from a limited run, but nicely done.  The cockpit components are cast in resin and there is a PE fret with added details.  Two injection molded canopies are also included, which is much appreciated as that’s one thing I have a habit of screwing up!XP56_011XP56_010DSC_2385DSC_2384DSC_2383DSC_2382XP56_009
