SR-71 Blackbird

Kit: Hobbycraft
Size: 4 3/4 inches, 1/288 scale
Completed, February 20, 1998

Sleek, stealthy and FAST!

   Although this kit's box is labeled 1/144 scale, the finished model is half that size and scales out to 1/288. The kit did not include a display stand or decals. Numbers, letters and red striping are dry transfers applied to clear decal film and then applied to the model. Other markings are from another aircraft kit. The stand is 3/16 inch polycarbonate on a basswood base.
