Something I got to thinking about doing while I was (of all things) taking
a shower this morning. Taking the decal sheet and Xeroxing it. Then
cutting out all of the red "pin striping" and using rubber cement or some
other form of "masking" agent and "painting" over them, then pulling them
up leaving the rubber cement mask behind and air brushing them on in red
paint. Then again using a SHARP blade cutting the "no step" portions off
and applying them after the paint has dried.
Also I was wondering who besides
makes aftermarket parts
for the SR-71 Blackbird. Such as the cockpit/seats/pilot/Systems
Operator, exhaust nozzle/tertiary door ring/engine hub.
Does anyone know if the two tail numbers were actual working aircraft, or
are they just a couple of numbers that Monogram made up???
Using Googles image search I've found a couple of SR-71s with the NASA
markings on them. An 849 IF I'm not mistaken and an 831. The NASA planes
DON'T have all the USAF markings, just a white band on the tail that says
NASA, and an ID number.
Sadly there aren't enough numbers to make up different numbers on the
sheet that came with the kit, so a sheet of (at least) numbers in the
right scale (1/72) and font would be needed to do different tail numbers.
Does anyone know IF anyone makes an aftermarket decal sheet that would
have the NASA tail band on it?
