New Tool SR-71......


Recommended Posts

Well, at least it’s showing progress and looks on track to an actual release.  The base for an in-flight display with cradles for engines looks pretty interesting.  But, after being burned by the 1/32 Super Hornet, I’ll reserve judgement until the actual kit comes out.

Interestingly enough, everybody carefully avoids mentioning the rather excellent Revell 1/32 P-51D-5 Mustang. 😄 

I’ll wait for the new Blackbird in confidence.

Yeah I remember getting burnt in a similar way when Tamiya released their A-10A
Never did trust the company after that...

Not until I see something more definitive than a poorly slapped together pre-build.  Until then, the stash has plenty of opportunities for build time.

Well if thats a photo of the completed kit its already looking not bad.

They seem to have got the top curves on the two canopies correct which gives hope for a correctly shaped upper fuse which also means it should make the dimensions ie width of the chine correct making it only the second kit to get it close to right(Italeri got pretty close).

Hopefully Revell had the A team deployed for this one and redeployed the guys who did the F-18E to Northern Alaska on polar bear patrol.

Visually its not looking bad fingers remain crossed and hopes high.

yes, it WAS. (container departure delays from China are now up to 12 weeks, I was said). Will let you know more if I get reliable information.

 

So, ETA is now December or January?  Okay, I'll stock up the Xmas drinks caddy soon and buy my Revell in the New Year.

SR-71 is not my cup of tea, but I share your sentiments regarding Hypersonic products. I've bought and used quite a

few sets from him and they outclass a lot of other AM manufacturer's stuff. So I guess his SR-71will be the icing on

the cake.

 

Plus, he creates AM stuff the mainstream guys will not touch like his A-3 engines and canopies...and hopefully, the main gear well. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge...

Wow, it is a huge improvement over the old Testors kit, indeed. The whole forward fuselage and windshield looks the part. Still, I've got this hunch that the one by Hypersonic Models/GasPatch is going to be even better, huh, @JeffreyK?

Okay, Andreas. Thank you very much for the info!

Is October over yet?  Still 2 1/2 weeks left where I live.

 

Guilty as charge, Dave. I'm such an anxious person, to me October means the 30th of September at 23:59:59.

Cheers,

 

Gwen
