Hi guys, my personal dream of building the best SR-71 replica now is real. I wanted to do it since 2013 when i started to play KSP, but parts and my personal skills weren't enough, so after I saw Exothermos sr-71 with those beautiful nacelles made of fairings, i decided to ask him a collaboration to recreate the most possibly realistic sr-71 we could. Gladly he accepted my request of help. He really added on this project what i couldn't do alone, so, many many many thanks to him! My primary goal was to achieve a perfect silhouette of the real plane, and in this im good at, but i have been always lacking in ideas to make my crafts more realistics and Exothermos had so many cool ideas instead! The shape of the whole craft was done by me using overlay of blueprints and more important, real photos.I can't deny it was a really boring and long process because im too much a perfectionist and almost crazy probably; the whole craft took about 50 hours to me (without counting Exo hours). I made the basic plane with few words, nose and neck shape, custom cockpit, wings, rudders. Exothermos made the wonderful nacelle using fairings and he focused on making things looking better: using winglets to recreate an edge on the whole craft and reworking the tail, and he recreated a nice transition to the mk2 fuselage to wings and chines using control surfaces. Well this is the results of our efforts, let the pics speak for themselves. some collage with overlays of real blackbird (old pics the craft is the finished one on the second pic) finished craft Some realistic shots taken by Exothermos WARNING 1 Before fly click "control from here" on the probodobodyne HECS (unmanned core) clipped inside the fairing nose like in these screens 2 Please be gentle with YAW imputs because the plane can stall if using too much imputs and enter on a almost fatal deathspiral. And now the DOWNLOAD 306 parts, game could be laggy. I want to thanks again exothermos P.S. let me know what you think about it and if there are bugs or glitches, and sorry for my bad english!
