Italeri 1/48 SR-71A Blackbird - renovation project

Use "Great Planes CA Glue Debonder" put a little on a q-tip and you may have to rub/roll it over the CA glue for a while but it will remove the CA glue and won't damage the plastic.  Just make sure you don't apply it over paint cause it will remove that too, but it's easy enough to just remark, prime, paint, etc.  stuff works like a charm and really comes in handy.

you mean theres something not acetone that dissolves CA glue and nothing else??? I cant tell you how often that has driven me nuts because Ive destroyed nary a part -resin or otherwise.

I've been using a walk around on prime portal,

and the pictures there look to me as though the colour is a consistent matte black. See link below!

It's what I'll be doing once I've gotten past the fill, sand and prime process.

Also very helpful stuff! Very much appreciated, as it also contains lots of details of landing gear and bays and engine interior.

Wonderful set of pictures! I missed it in the Research Corner at the time you published.

Thank you

Hi Bastian, from this pic in that wondeful thread, you see a major inaccuracy of the Testors/Italeri kit: the intersection of the triangular windscreen with the nose is straight and horizontal, instead of curved and going downward as it should be. Not an easy fix, though.
