CD48100 - 1/48 SR-71 / YF-12 Blackbird

Recommended Posts

CD48100 and CD48101 will be a very extensive, two-set series covering the SR-71 / YF-12 (and A-12) Blackbird. It will have markings for the D-501 drone and a few scientific/experimental payloads seen on Blackbirds as well.

 

My goal is to cover almost everything that had ever been painted on a Blackbird - nose art galore, spare serial numbers, NASA aircraft etc. 

 

It is getting closer to completion (careful Caracal watchers know that CD48100 and CD48101 have been reserved for a while now), and I expect to make it available in the August batch.

The Italeri / Testors kits are the only game in town right ?

Yes - the 1/48 sheets will be for the Testors/Italeri kit, and I will eventually do a 1/72 version for a kit that I will choose later on. 

 

I am not aware of a new 1/48 kit, if that's what you mean to ask - I just want to address the current demand and put the existing sheets to a well-deserved retirement ;-)

This is great news Kursad. Yet again you surprise me with what you have going on in your pipeline. I only have one kit and I have a couple of sheets from others but I may still bite as you may have more interesting stuff.

 

Also, I seem to recall there was a thread at guessing what your 100th 1/48th sheet was going to be. Well I guess I lost that bet :rolleyes:

It will be nice if Tanmodel can pull it off. They have an ambitious list to work through and I would pounce on any 1/32 F-111 released. It would be nice to know if they're listing those kits in order of production?

Awesome. I have like 6 of those kits that could use markings so I don't have to cut into Afterburner sheets :P

Dragon make a very nice 1/144 kit that could use some decals. I'm just saying. :rolleyes:

 

And maybe some Beale KC-135 decals as well.

 

I always look forward to any of your sheets. Keep up the great work.

Hi,

 

That sounds like a couple of really cool sheets. I like the idea of all the nose art to look at, not that I'm going to build a fleet of 1/48 Blackbirds.

I do not even recall seeing a 1/48 Blackbird kit here in Belgium. I have only seen it in an old Italeri catalog. I have a 1/72 SR-71, so I'm looking forward to the 1/72 sheets as well.

I think that Jeffrey K from Hypersonic Models has mentioned that he would like to produce a full kit of a Blackbird in 1/48.

 

Cheers, Stefan.

Hello Kursad!  Long time!  I've bene out of modeling for about 7 years, but I still have a 32 kits stash that I will get to someday.  Two of those kits are 48th SR-71s which have two A-12 conversions and an old Eagles Talon D-12.  I see the last post here is July, are these decals out yet?

 

Chappie

Alrighty.  I will certainly purchase a sheet when they are ready.  Thanks!

Hopefully, it won't stay on the drawing board as I'd be in for several sheets.

Don't worry, it will not. It looks like I should be able to release this in the February timeframe. It is a complex sheet; and takes time to design.

Awesome! I can appreciate the time required to get these to one’s standards.

Still needs some work. Definitely coming before the end of the year, though - I will update the thread as soon as I have anything new to say.

Now this is a great idea that I would have never come up with myself!  I am not sure if there will be space for it - but if there is, I will squeeze these markings on the 72nd / 144 scale sheets somewhere. Thanks!
