overriding widget in ModelChoiceField doesn't work as expected

Using below custom ModelChoiceField will not use RadioSelect widget as expected.

class MyModelChoiceField(forms.ModelChoiceField):
    widget = forms.RadioSelect

You can work around that issue by overriding init like so:

class MyModelChoiceField(forms.ModelChoiceField):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        return super(MyModelChoiceField, self).__init__(widget=forms.RadioSelect, *args, **kwargs)

I guess this is a bug either with ModelChoiceField or with the documentation.
