"Looks good, fun to build"
Great kit, parts fit fairly well for the most part. Two things to watch out for during assembly: 1. If you are going to assemble the plane with the cockpits closed, the figures must be removed, otherwise the cockpits will not close completely ( yes, I made sure to completely seat the figures and seats into the cockpit module).2. The pilots' canopy frame is thin, so you need a sprue cutter or hobby saw or knife to detach it without breaking the frame. Decals are good but the pinstripes, as I call them ( the long red decals ) are difficult to apply. Apply water or microset to the surface first, slide the decal on, and use a toothpick to maneuver the decal into the correct position. Use microsol if necessary. Option to display the drone on a cart or piggyback on the main bird. Overall, very satisfying build.

"Not bad. Problems when applying final coating on decals..."
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
I've allways looked for a blackbird. And this was the one I found. I've enjoyed building it, even if it was hard to disguise some of the seams without taking out the raised pannel details. Some of those details I do think they could be excessive, however, the corrugated titanium skin, which gave it a ford trimotor look, is well done. The ammount of detail is adequate, and the painting may be one of the simplest, as most of it is black, except for the exhaust nozzles. One detail is that it is not expressed that with the drone in piggy back mode, it may never be a SR-71 blackbird... The drone only goes on the back of a M12, a modified version of the A12 interceptor, but were soon out of commision because of danger of collision during launch. Even if the A12 does look like a SR-71, its actually slightly different airplanes... That should be mentioned on the manual... I did had problems with the decals: they looked wonderfull, and when I sprayed the matt final coating, they started to curl and unglue... I had the same problem on a Monogram B2, but I dare to say it was manufacturing problem... But there are plenty of aftermarket ones, and as long as you're carefull on the matt coating, everything may be ok. The airplane does look beautyful. My advice is to get it.

"Not bad for an older kit"
Patrick (Sydney, Australia)
Overall, the product was good considering the age of the kit. You will need to fill the gaps in the underside wing sections when you glue the two main fuselage sections together, and a little for the horizontal stabilisers. The decals were suprisingly good. I omitted the landing gear and mounted it on a stand, and did not glue the canopies so that I could remove them to look at the cockpit details. For a low cost kit, it was value for money.

"Good representation of the SR71"
A very affordable SR71. Another Revell/Monogram kit that's been around for a while, but has aged well. The outline, shape and surface detail are very well done, and the kit has few parts, so ig goes together easily, and the D-21 drone is a nice plus. When completed, it captures the look of the Blackbird well.
