Looks OK to me, another one for my collection. If they got the dimensions correct it looks good for its size. Its only 8.2cm x 4.2cm.

I'm assuming it will come with undercarriage display option too, won't it ?

I am waiting to see this too. Not only for the SR-71, but equally for the B-1B.

I think my 1:400 budget is going to be shifting into high gear soon. Another thread has pics of the B-1 gear.

Here is my pic of the B-1B and I like it quite a bit. I have high hopes that the SR-71 will look great in the flesh as well.

I read on another forum that the wings do not swing...

Oh......Thanks Al. That's too bad. It would be so easy for a manufacturer to reverse mould the excellent monogram kit from the seventies. I have about 6 of this kits, but would love to see it in metal....with swing wings.

the wings do not swing but the mould was designed so they could be placed in either position when manufacturing the model

Wouldn't the photo in post #11 be "Cruise Mode"....high speed? , and the above in low speed approach/loitering mode?
