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.
