CD72088 - 1/72 SR-71 / YF-12 Blackbird

Recommended Posts

The 1/72 versions of the SR-71 sheets will be available in mid-August, after I come back from vacation. They are directly scaled down from the 1/48 sheets, with a couple differences:  all the stencils used for both sheets are on a single sheet, which will also be available separately (only 200 pcs though). And the late USAF / NASA SR-71 sheet has markings for the LASRE aerospike.

I will post the images of the common stencilling sheet tonight.

How many aircraft do I get out of one "stencil sheet"? Only one, two (early / late), or even more?

 

It would be a shame to let all those individual markings go to waste. So if I'd like to build, say, four SR's, how many stencil sheets would I have to get?

There is one set of walkways, one set of national insignia (late period SR-71s did not have national insignia except one option on the sheet) and one full set each of early/late markings on the stencil sheet.

I didn’t see the seperate stencil sheet mentioned with the September releases. When will it be available ?

I still have not made up my mind about the stencilling sheets - they cost more than I expected and I need to figure out an appropriate price point. I have the decals (only 200 of them) , but will not sell them separately just yet. But when I do, it is highly likely that they will be only available directly from me.

 

I will update the thread as soon as things are more clear.

How about offering 200 “combo” sets of your YF/SR sheets with double stencil sheets for an appropriately higher price?  People who want to buy the extra  stencil sheet will presumably buy the regular/full YF/SR sheet anyway, (I know I would) and you wouldn’t  have to incur the expenses of printing extra instruction sheets or bag/package/ship the seperate stencils sheets...

 

just spit ballin’ here...

I am unclear on this. does this mean that the SR-71 sheets will not come with the stencil sheets? or does it mean that you have 200 extra

The SR-71 sets are complete and every single one of them comes with a stencil sheet as clearly shown on the Web pages for these items.

 

I have an extra 200 stencilling sheets that I intended to sell separately. I hope this clarifies it.

I already indicated my interest in the spare stencil sheets above. So +1 to what habu2 said. I'll buy two stencil sheets to go with the full sets no matter what they cost 😄

I think I will go with habu2's idea - I should have the product pages up sometime this weekend.

Thank you Sir and I will be (one of) the first to pre-order a pair of “combo sets”. 🙂

I’ve been holding off placing my order for these sheets until the extra stencil sheet option is available. Are you still planning to offer this option?

Yes - just swamped with some design deadlines. It will happen in a couple of days.

Any update on the "combo platter" for both Blackbird sets? I've been holding off ordering expecting this to be added to the website.

I just added PayPal buttons for CD72088X and CD72089X,  which will include 2 stencil sheets along with the main markings sheet. Sorry about the wait - things have been very hectic over the last few weeks. 

 

CD72088X and CD72089X are limited to 100 copies each, and will only be available direct from the Caracal web site. Thanks!
