This kit was great! I enjoyed building it the model came out great. A small little issue where the top and bottom of the aircraft didn't want to come together but after heavy gluing and clamping it together the model looks great!

Love the sr-71, amazing details and decals, I think revell should have given extra decals as they are really delicate and small, looks really good! would recommend it to anyone who likes military planes.
