This craft is a full stock 2:7 scale replica of the SR-71 Blackbird. This craft has Spark engine afterburners, which necessitate the use of infinite fuel. The craft is very slow unfortunately, but is decently maneuverable. This craft was built purely for aesthetics, and true to form for me it has an absurd part count for its minuscule size. This craft was originally built some time ago, and was recently retrofitted. Ideally I would rebuild the craft from scratch as it’s old infrastructure was a constant obstacle to the redesigns. Given more time a full revamp would be more accurate and have better performance. In the future I may revisit a mini SR-71 again.

Well, it looks very real. And given your past history, 405 parts isn't too bad.

Very nice replica! It looks better than most larger Blackbirds. Those engines are awesome, and the same goes for the tail fins. Truly a master of all scales.

You know, your not wrong. But, I still want to improve more in that area.

Thanks a lot man, I still really wouldn't call myself a master of small scale. But I do certainly have a lot of fun with them, craft like this especially force me to really experiment with my part usage to get things looking right. Whereas my larger replicas all use the same parts pretty much.

I'll consider myself a master when I can make something with a reasonable part count that doesn't fly like a brick.
