"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.

"Pretty basic, but fun"
nholthaus
Everyone needs an SR-71 for their collection! This is a very simple build, not many pieces and the black plastic it's cast in almost doesn't require painting. WATCH OUT for the red stripe decals! They're very thin and fragile. My advice would be to cut the long ones into 3 smaller, more manageable pieces before trying to apply them.

 
"Revell SR 71 Review"
jsea96
This is a decent kit from Revell. Very easy to assemble and the kit details are good. Panel lines are raised and not engraved. Cockpit and landing gear are detailed. Requires putty work to hide the seam for the main fuselage. Canopies are molded in back plastic with clear inserts. They can be mounted in open or closed position. The decals are very good and we're very easy to apply. There are thin red lines along the fuselage that are tricky to position. I would suggest cutting into 2 pieces to make it easier to position and avoid tearing the decal. The kit comes with a drone that can be mounted on top of the SR 72 or on a cart:carrier. Note: you will need to drill 2 small holes for the pins for the mounting bracket for the drone. Overall a fun kit to build that looks terrific when painted.

 
"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.
