A milestone! The engines are attached to the fuselagewings bit. Off course with the usual bad fit!

Awesome and following.👍

I had the Italeri 1/48 SR-71 version when I was in my teens, and lost count of how many times I dry fit the fuselage components together. I sold it in the end as I figured I'd never get around to building it due to its size, and not having anywhere practical to display it.
I'm very curious about the new Revell release.

Welcome Jos, Daniel and James! Yes, James I know what you mean. Purchased this kit in the second half of 2020 and dry fitted the parts several times since then 😄. And since Revell was coming with a new tool SR-71 I thought it was a good moment to start the YF-12. A very basic kit I must say. I hope to finish it before November 27th. The date of Euro Scale Modelling, the Dutch IPMS nationals. I'm manning a table with some mates(Jos Jansen i.e.) there and this one would look good on the table.

Started this beast! No rescribing, not too much aftermarket, just build this awesome piece of machinery! It will look impressive as it is. Not sure if it will be a all black of black/titanium machine. But a NASA machine is likely..
