SR-71A Blackbird

RMG 4967 

 

SR-71 #951 also known for a time as YF-12C #06937, and sometimes confused with A-12 60-6937, the second SR-71 .In 1971, #17951 was loaned to NASA to complete the testing of the YF-12A program. 951 was temporarily designated as a YF-12C  and given NASA#937.  

 

On October 27, 1978, Col. Jim Sullivan and Maj. William Frazier crewed her return flight to the Air Force, where she was put back in their inventory and given back her old number.  Frazier and pilot LtCol. Calvin Jewett logged the last of her 796.7 flying hours two months later, on December 22, 1978

 

951 remained in storage at Lockheed's facility in Palmdale, California until 1990, when she was disassembled and trucked to Pima Air & Space Museum, just east of Tucson, Arizona.

We've all built at least 3 or 4 of those Monogram B-17s growing up. I have a vintage one in the stash now to go down the rabbit hole with all the new detail parts available today.

But I always wondered why Monogram didn't just sell the clear fuselage half by itself? Then we could show off any kit as a visible B-17.

Gotta do my part for the old Monogram thread, here's the Bill Koster/Monogram 1/48 XP-72.  There are more pictures in another post in the aircraft section.

I built this old monogram/revell 80s era 1/35 AH 64 in IDF markings.

The detail in the kit is OK, a little heavy in terms of rivet size but not to bad. Fit in areas was tricky, might have been warping due to age.

Photographed the Mustang out in natural light this morning to capture some of the Alclad metallic reflectivity that is present but subtle consistent with weathering in an operational combat aircraft.

Just completed this Revell 1/32 Mustang for the 8th AF Group Build. Lots of scratch work in the pit, gear wells. Wing tank and brake lines added. Paints used were Alclad metallicsi and Model Master enamels. The base is made using an old picture frame, Sculptamold and craft acrylics.

stikpusher, I agree with what you said about the quality of these builds.  All of them look great and it brings back so many memories to see these kits from my childhood still being made into gems today!

PJ, that Phantom is a real beauty! Great job on backdating it to the Vietnam F-4E. Looks all ready to go downtown! Yes

John, those are two great looking builds also! Amazing how that old H-19 kit can still look so good in spite of its age. And ya gotta love that Airbus and its' livery. Not your average looking airliner.

Completed this huge 1/32 Revell F4E commission recently. It has a resin pit and some mods to backdate it to the earlier E variant. The SEA paint was done freehand using a Badger Sotar. Decals are from the Tamiya kit.

Nice Spitfire!  Just don't let Bish see it.  He's probably had enough Spits for one year!  Stick out tongue

Squeezed in one last Revell build in 2021.  Finished it the morning of 31 December.  This is the Revell Germany Spitfire IX with Tamiya decals.  Got it as a builder's special from a chap over on Aircraft Resource Center.  He included a fret of Tamiya PE as well.

 

Thanks for looking and happy new year.

Retired and living the dream!

Man...ive got over 60 in my current stash in 1:48 scale.  Currently working on the 1:48 Spitfire mkii.  Ill get some pics posted up when im done.  I love building the Revell-Monogram kits as they are the ones I built as a kid and they remind of me of the good old days.  They can really be built into some nice kits if your not a rivit counter. 

Perfection is having fun and relaxing...not building the perfect model.

The decals may have given you some problems, but overall your Blackbird looks very sharp! The distance shot shows the beauty without revealing the flaws. Wink

I have been fascinated of late with the SR-71.  Lots of great pilot interviews on youtube worth watching.  So I got the old Revellogram 1/72 and gave it a whirl.  My goal was a quick stress free build.  Mission accomplished.  No OCD in this build.  That said after being happy with the paint job, I should have gotten aftermarket decals.  The Revell supplied decals are terrible.  But from 5 feet it looks OK.

Revells newer auto kits are really nice.  This is the 2019 release Land Rover Series III LWB. EDIT: Better pics

 

Wow reminds me of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. Really nicely done, looks real!

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

I finally finished "restoring" my Monogram FW-190.  Like some others, it's been sitting in a box for 50 years awaiting the day I would pull it out and work on it.  Broken parts were fixed with a lot of putty and the windscreen was replaced with cut out clear plastic (easier than I thought).  The first photo shows the condition of the model prior to repair (as you can see I have a few more to go).

Thanks for looking!

Just put this up over in a/c...my first ever Mossie, the old Mono 1/48 gem done up as a 'night intruder' with Aeromaster 'Mosquito Raiders V' decals.
