Damn! What a huge plane😂! Look at the small bottle on top of the carton 😬.

Looking forward to this one! But where the hell I should show this one once finished🤔.

Bring it on Konrad! Taking a seat..

Konrad Limmer
I do my best Mathieu😎!
I love this bird since my childhood! One of the most impressive looking shapes on jet planes in my opinion.

Mathieu
Can't agree more! Think I will have a crack at this kit as soon as it hit the stores.
I'm sure you will turn it into a stunner.

I went to order it on Hannants and shipping to the states is 70.00. I will be waiting.

Count me in Konrad, what's your opinion on the details of the hull? The first pictures I saw were a bit disappointing.

i would love to get an SR-71 in my vitrine... but it will be a 1/72. but i will certainly follow this one with interest 🙂

Thanks Donald Yep here in Germany the price is 80 plus Euro. But I can't resist on this one😀.

Thanks Moritz! The parts looking ok. It is the typical Revell quality I guess. Will see how it goes together. I've uploaded some pics of the kit. So you can see what expect you once you open the box. So the dimension is impressive.

Thanks Spanjaard Yep that is a wise decision. I really don't know what place I should reserve for this iconic plane.

Thank you mates for your kind interest on this one. It will take a while to start this one. But anyhow I'll keep you updated 😬

Although I go with Spanjaard and will build it in scal 1/72, I am definitely in on that one. I am particular anxious to see how you manage the black paint.

Haha, I think you are hitting a record on scalemates!
The most commented build thread, without actual build happening!
Congratulations :-D

Hey Mathieu I currently thinking the same😂!

Yep and also a little bit more primer and putty and glue😀! Very welcome mate!

Is this kit include the engine in details?
12 December 2021, 04:49
Konrad Limmer
Yep both engines could be shown separately!

Treehugger
Heh, imo box ought to have said "All new moulding". Assuming ofc every sprue is designed from scratch again. "New" just had me wonder if this was a reboxing, which it apparently isn't. 🙂

Maciej Bellos
In of course!

My kit is on its way and will arrive tomorrow. I've preordered it and finally - one more day. Although it will take some time before I get to build this kit. I'm stuck with some other issues I have to handle first.
So I will take a seat here and enjoy watching you building your kit, Konrad. 🙂

And I totally agree with what you wrote above: "[...] One of the most impressive looking shapes on jet plane [...]"
14 December 2021, 18:44
Konrad Limmer
Thats cool Pero! You can expect a really big package 😬!
Take a seat a beer or two this will take some time😀! Glad that so many are interested on this kit/bird. So I Hope it will look as cool as the former real jet.

I thought that I will go for an inflight scenery with reconnaissance landscape below. So that's my idea so far. Will see how it ends😬.

If you are building it originally, have enough rags ready. The tanks were never tight at the ground and drooled 😄 😄
14 December 2021, 18:56
Augie
I like it drooled... was more like incontinent..
14 December 2021, 19:11
Konrad Limmer
Yeah I know😂, so that's why I go for the inflight mode😂.

Thanks for the kind words on my smaller effort Konrad! I was lucky enough to explore both the tail fin of 17955 and it's massive J-58 engine up close and personal on a behind the scenes tour of the San Diego Air and Space Museum. Very tempted by this 1/48 version but I think I'd have to build an extension to the house as well just to display it!
16 December 2021, 08:24
Konrad Limmer
That sounds really interesting to see those parts of the plane life😎!
To show this bird I also have to think about a house extension😬

Eduardo Arguijo
tell us how is the detail..... I dont see the camera compartiments... Is it a mix of raised and reseased panel lines? I did the old testors a few years back, its one of my favorites airplanes, and it took a lot of elbow grease...
16 December 2021, 15:52
Dominik Weitzer
now thats interesting! The "new one" - keep it coming in all details 🙂
16 December 2021, 17:13
Neil
Ha!Ha! 🙂 Was bound to happen mate! Too many times this keeps popping up, for me not to... (even though I already own twice in stash in other versions)... I have just ordered this kit also 😉

WhiteGlint
Sometimes it is really hard to say no to a kit. 😄
16 December 2021, 17:43
Neil
Cheers WhiteGlint. I'm gonna use that excuse on my wife when it's delivered 👍 I'll let you know how it goes 🤣😂
16 December 2021, 17:58
Konrad Limmer
@ Eduardo the kit looks very nice in my opinion the panel lines are fine and recessed! I think the two big fuselage parts will be a challenge to marry them together. Will see😬. This is also one of my favorite planes since my childhood. So I'm looking forward to this one😎.

@ Dominik I'll try my best on this one👍!

@ Neil Nice to hear that, so looking forward to yours too😬

@ WhiteGlint that's absolutely true and there are so many kits out there 😎!

Great to have you all on board👍🏻

I am definitely in Konrad...I wanna order also one!

Worth a watch, especially if you're not aware that there's one in the UK...
