1/72 Revell SR-71 Blackbird

This is Revell Monogram's SR-71 Blackbird in 1/72. The Blackbird has always been a favorite of mine.  I built this kit right out of the box, and assembly was a cinch.  Even the decal placement was a cinch which surprised me, because I was dreading the red "do not step" markings since they were all one piece.  This is a first of a 3 part series, I am building the Lockheed family of Spy Planes, and currently have the F-117 set a side. 

While I am working on my other favorite, the B-2 Bomber, if any one knows of any good U2 Spy Plane kits out there I'd appreciate an email. Also please don't hesitate to email me about any comments or suggestions on how to improve my models.
