As per the header I'm looking for a proper paint scheme for the P-61A Black Widow. I'd like to paint a 1:285 model and have it look decent on the table. Your help would be appreciated.

There were a couple.

Most were black overall.

Others were olive drab, with a gray nose radome.

Check out images of the 1/144th scale planes on eBay as well.

No doubt, there are still some listed.
