YES! It's about time someone (besides Italeri/Testors) came out with a 1/48 SR! The Italeri/Testors SR is okay (I've built two of them so far), but the molds ARE 40 years old!
2 | 5. August, 01:27
Aaron Bennett
Uh oh, the value of my Testors SR-71 kits and accessories stash just took a nose-dive!
5. August, 02:28
Slavo Hazucha
This is on my wishlist since it got announced in Nurenberg this year... :)

Aaron - probably time to hit the e-bay button before everyone get´s the news... But then - it says new tool 2021, but who knows...
5. August, 08:41
Augie
I'm hoping to use it and Older ones to bash good builds.. who knows.
5. August, 12:46
Jeremy Wiltcher
Hopefully they do an A-12 and a YF-12 as well.
5. August, 13:11
Aaron Bennett
I'm really excited about it, but you're right, now may be the time to part with some of it. This is always a risk as a model collector I guess. A new tool bringing down the value of a once sought after kit. This has happened quite a bit to me recently. Trumpeter with their 1/48 Whirlwind really dropped the value of my Classic Airframes kits , Academy's 1/48 Huckbein took my AMTech kits way down, Modelcollects 1/72 B2 hurt my Testors stash, and now this. Please know I'm complaining at all here, I love new releases, just an interesting aspect of modeling.

Now this is a bird I'd like to build by you. I liked the Aardvark a lot, and even saw it from very close 30 years ago, but it doesn't match the Blackbird (from a shape point of view, not what you'll make of it. Your talent makes even an ugly duck a swan)
16. March, 22:58
Greg Solomon
And I just bought two 1/48 kits at an estate auction too...
20. March, 23:46
Slavo Hazucha
Would have done the same given the chance... What were the odds for a 48-scale Blackbird coming...

Lode thanks mate, I am already imagining some new techniques & experiments to try out on this, heat-matted black color, fuel streaks... ;)

Slavo, just what the blackbird needs :)

Thank You. I remember both Kiddyland Blackbirds were sold by one ebay shop some years ago. Is it an another copy of the Hasegawa kit? Are lines raised like Hasegawa or engraved like different copies from Academy and MHM/Trumpeter?

Thanks guys and welcome! I've heard this thing is a putty monster too... Not looking forward to that. But... Every build I've seen of this looks awesome, so I really am looking forward to adding it to my collection.

Where did you find this one? LOL. Are you up to another "Stealth" build?
30. August 2016, 19:29
Augie
Lol Heyy Clifford,

You could say that. I am trying to get a few together as I want to do

A-12, M-21, SR-71A, SR-71B, YF-12 and maybe a A-12 trainer (Titanium Goose)

So yeah kinda stealth :) Plus.. they look damn good
30. August 2016, 19:37
Clifford Keesler
Yea especially in 1/48, all I have are 1/72. I think all the 1/48 ones are OOP.
30. August 2016, 19:50
Augie
Yeah, they are OOP. There are some inaccuracies in the mold which given the date they were created is to be expected.

I get lucky with my dealer friend and occasionally ebay. Tho ebay can be very expensive!

Clifford Keesler
If you go to Revell/Monogram's website, they have a on line parts request form. just tell them what you need. Their customer service is excellent. My dog chewed up the whole cockpit to an F-4 I was building, and they sent me a new one free of charge.
16. January 2016, 01:44
Mike Fuller
Wish I had seen this earlier...so on a whim I looked them up and submitted for one of the broken pieces but was conservative and only requested the one part figuring I could cast, at a future date, the other missing piece (cone inlet). Should have asked for everything I guess, but didn't want to take advantage of the system!
16. January 2016, 13:02
Mike Fuller
Not that you did! Just figured they wouldn't send me the one if I asked for too much.
16. January 2016, 13:06
Mike Fuller
Submitted another request and asked for the gambit! Many pieces were missing, more than I could request (entire cockpit missing, all clear parts, and then random parts), but I maximized my request as best I could so I should be able to build this up if they send me what I asked for.

Me too! I had a look at this kit before I put it in the post to Augie, and it looks pretty good. And big!! I like the silver and black paint scheme, too. I think that is much more interesting than the overall black (actually very very dark blue, or so they say) of the SR-71.

This is the very last casting, produced by special request. The producer says the moulds are very damaged and not longer useful.
By the way, the Blackbird family has a lot of designations (A-12, YF-12. M-21, SR-71), for so few airframes built. On behalf of those that don't have the knowledge of this lineage I think it will be better to merge all the related topics under the more common 'Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird'.

This one is one of my latest, the SR-71 from Testors in 1/48th scale. This has been the model on which I had to work more putty and sand more plastic than ever, the injection mold most be very damaged by age, the plastic parts have a lot of injection flaws that need to be corrected, to make things more complicated, I decided to rescribe all panel lines. I used the true details cockpit and wheels, great plus to the kit.

I hope you like it. Any suggestions are welcome.
12. January 2014, 06:22
Alan Rush
Hello Eduardo. The Testors kit needed a lot of work it seems. Your patience paid off since the finished model looks very nice. That was an awful lot of putty for a model but judges can see the work that went into it. Looks great.

This is the Drone based on the SR-71 that was sopoused to be carried on the back of a YF-12. Tha trucket was made from evergreen struts.
Hope you like it.
10. January 2014, 03:30
Glenn .
Despite what all the kits that have been released would have you think, the SR-71A and the YF-12A never carried the GTD-21 drone! It was only ever carried on the version known as the M-12 and I believe only launched a couple of times before they switched to carrying 2 of them under a B-52H wing pylon with a booster rocket fitted under it. The M-12 had a thinner nose chine (taper) and as such unless you modify the italerl blackbird kit looks too wide at the front. I guess that's why your making the trolley for it?
The Monogram/Revell kit had a trolley.

Glenn, I knew about The B-52 platform, and that is exactly why I build the trolley, at first I thought to make it in flying mode on a stand, but I got past my laziness and decided to build the trolley.

I'm going to make a M-12 using the rear of the YF-12A kit with a thinned down SR-71 nose section grafted on that's why there's a few in my stash.
