Academy 1/72 SR-71
One of my favorite, Black bird ! The Academy kit is quite low in fittings and decals. The red stripe "Do not step" is impossible to be adhered to, so I decided to paint it. I Did a mix of glossy black of Humbrol with dark blue Testors for the secret indigo blue ... white pastel used to weathering, seat belts made from duct tape, metal cotes for the turbines, and a mixture of metallic grays for internal parts in titanium. I was very pleased, and won silver medal at the annual convention 2014 here in Brazil .. I hope you enjoy.
