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

Recommended Posts

With so many options on these sheets is there any chance of releasing the common data sheet separately as part of your Basics line?

I thought about this, but the stencilling specific to early and late airframes would not fit on a single, common data sheet. You may have noticed that the common sheet does not include all the stencils, just the big wing walkways, national insignia and some other common details. I also don't think too many folks will end up building multiple 1/48 Blacbird kits. 

 

I will definitely have a separate stencilling sheet for the 1/72 sets, though. The Revell 1/72 scale SR-71 is inexpensive and easily available, and it makes sense for a Basics stencilling sheet for the common markings.

This looks like a great sheet Kursad. I only have one kit and even though I have read that it needs a lot of work to correct I don't care. I think your decals will look great on it. Thinking of the NASA one.

The wait is almost over - I will enable preorders on Saturday. There seems to be a lot of interest in new SR-71 / YF-12 decals and these two sheets will bring a lot of options and high quality of printing at a reasonable price.

Placed an order for the Part 1 sheet because I've got two Kiwi A-12 conversions.  Gonna build the prototype and the M-21.

 

BTW Kursad- did you see my email with early F-16 photos?  I like this "Early" series and would love to help with an F-16 sheet.

I can see those SR-71 Sheets selling out fast. All I wanted was the Nasa SR-71C, but couldn't resist hoarding both sheets, and the A-12's what a surprise! Now to offload my cutting edge sheets.

 

Thank you @KursadA for tickling my Nasa itch.

I am amazed at the response to these sheets - thank you all! I sincerely hope that you will like the decals when you receive them.

One quarter (25%) of the entire print run has been preordered in less than 16 hours that passed since I sent the e-mail to the list.

Lol, I had a feeling that was going to happen.  Congrats on another successful round of releases Kursad!

Any plans to post the instructions?

 

I don't post my instructions online, but please let me know if you have a particular question or concern about them.

Just asking. You link some of your stencil instructions on your website. Given my eyesight these days, it would be handy for placement of some of the smaller SR-71 stencils. I usually try to find the electronic file for decal manufacturers' maintenance stencil sheets. No biggie.

I will make a note and make sure you receive a PDF version of the stencil instructions for the SR-71 - PM inbound later today.

Did my part too and pre-ordered two sets of these as soon as this sheet was enabled but I'm still waiting on 48100 to get here.   I got 48101 over the weened but not this sheet.  I sure hope the USPS didn't loose mine.

I had originally ordered and received just Part 1 but went back now and just ordered Part 2.  I don't want to miss out on any of the options available.

I did not have time to ship any reseller orders before I had to fly to London for vacation - I am now back and will ship all reseller orders within the next 7-10 days. I would expect them to have this sheet in stock in early September.
