The previous reviewer slammed this kit because he claimed" it's a snap together kit and easily falls apart". This is not a "snap together kit" , I don't know how he came to that conclusion, obviously he didn't read the instructions or the box for that matter. This is a glue together kit, and it's very well detailed. The parts fit is excellent. Hopefully Revell will follow it up with other new tool Star Wars kits, especially a new tool Imperial Star Destroyer kit to replace the horrible 35 year old 1/4222 scale MPC/AMT Star Destroyer. This Republic Star Destroyer is in 1/2256 scale and it is a wonderful kit. Children will need supervision and help in building it. Highly recommended!
It was a good kit for the price, accurately represents the SR71 in this scale. There were not a lot of exterior features on the real aircraft, so don't expect super detail in the kit. Interior detail is well hidden when built with the canopies in the closed position, not too bad when open.The kit goes together well, with a few fit issues, nothing to be too concerned with. It is what it is and acceptable at that. I provided security for these birds on Okinawa in 67-68 and personally witnessed the first operational flight of the SR71. The version of he Rapid Rabbit was on ****, and after crash landing there, the story goes most of the remains are buried there in ***.
