SR71 Blackbird Italeri 1/72

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here is my Italeri Blackbird

Original panel lines are raised.

So i do at first a sanding on all the plane and the panel lines were engraved

I use Tamiya & Gunze Acrylics for painting

Wheathering was done with pastel and oil.

Superb love the weathering. There was always a buzz on the fence at Mildenhall when an SR71 taxied out - love it!

That is a fantastic build and very nicely finished.  I have just started one too so know the kit well.  I have opted for in-flight though, pinched a couple of pilots from the spares box and used putty to fashion the correct helmet.

 

I hope mine looks as good when it's finished.

And the result speaks volume! :D

I remember one clear cold early Saturday winters morning cycling to my friends and hearing a jet engines, which is unusual for a Saturday as nothing military is flying at a weekend in Cambridgeshire/Norfolk, looking up and watching a SR71 climbing up and heading out over towards the north sea. This was at the hieght of the cold war early 1980's

Very nice Blackbird. As others have said: the weathering looks very good.

quite stunning - very  nice model. I am not normally drawn to anything other than civil builds but having built Hasegawa's egg SR71 recently, the Blackbird has become something of interest and a subject I am now quite interested to see built up in it's proper shape and form, so your forum entry has immediately caught my attention

 

well done to you, very nice work

Really beautiful work!

 

Wish I had the courage to build my 1/48 SR-71!!! (it's been in the modelling-hangar for the past 27 years!!!)

Re-scribing all those fairly complex panel lines must have been a real chore!  I admire your technique and your determination, they resulted in a really beautiful aircraft!

I love the variation you've achieved on the black. How did you get that?
