"When paired with the D-21 drone, this is actually an M-21"
rarem37
With the drone launching stand on the rear of the SR-71; it is actually a M-21. The two craft together were referred to as M/D-21. This kit is a simple but nice build. If you don't use the drone launching stand it is a good SR-71 model and the drone can be displayed on the cart supplied in the kit. Applying the decals can be a problem due to the corrugated surface of the wings. Applying them over gloss paint and using Micro Sol will take care of most of the problems.

"parts removal from sprue trees"
ricmac50 (el paso, texas)
I purchased this model a while back and also noticed the extra plastic surrounding the plane parts. The best way to remove these, is very carefully cut parts from tree making sure enough plastic is being cut with part, so as to trim excess plastic around part. Use sprue cutters for removal or better yet use micro saws that will cut cleanly then trim parts accordingly. Where there is a will, there is a way. Common sense can go a long way, too. Hope this will help....

 
"Looks good, fun to build"
kuririn111111111
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.

 
"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.
