"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.

"Good representation of the SR71"
jimmbbo
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.

 
"Building the SR-71 BIGbird"
Baron619
Ok as the title insists, this is a pretty large kit even for its 1/72 scale size. It's molded in black plastic so if you're not so great at painting large parts you can leave it alone, however doing this greatly reduces the beauty of this plane as the casting imperfections are highly visible. To get the best finish I would prime the entire fuselage and then spray on some flat or satin black. It's also fairly easy to add lights to the cockpit and the detail inside is pretty good for the scale of the kit. The fuselage fits together in such a way that the seam where the two halves join is next to invisible. The smaller drone aircraft is also a nice bonus and can be mounted on the SR-71 with a little modification, which only involves drilling out two holes on top of the plane, or on the included cart. The decals are ok, nothing really special but they look ok. Along with the positive comes the negative. Some of the parts are too firmly attached to the sprue. If you are not careful you can easily damage these pieces and in turn the entire look of the plane. Still overall this is a nice kit and worthy of the build. The only reason I didn't give it the final star was because of the issues around the overly attached pieces.

 
"FASTEST AIRCTAFT OF ALL TIME."
fredfredburger
This was one of my early builds. My mistake again (as with the p-61) of not painting the overall body in black because it was molded in black already. It was not hard, but was a lot of details in the interior, and it was very delicate overall the body. Take your time with the landing gear, the interior panels, and antenna (my broke). Also take your time with the decals one by one the red lines tear very easily. A masterpiece of an aircraft. Make sure all panels line up and compress them lightly by rubber bands or clamps.
