SR-71 Blackbird

The SR-71 Blackbird is the coolest of the cool jets! Super fast, stealthy, amazing look, I always knew I wanted to build one out of LEGO® bricks!

LEGO® Model vs. Real

So... one day when my wife was out of town and I had a couple of days off I thought to myself "self... it's time to build a LEGO® SR-71 Blackbird..." so I built it. It took a solid 24 hours of building and then another 6+ to input into LDraw (the LEGO® CAD software) and create instructions. The biggest challenge was getting the round engines and intakes to look good.

I took it to work the next week and got lots of comments... either about how cool it was or about how geeky I was. I took them all as compliments.

This is seriously the greatest aircraft set ever. It's a beautiful build and looks amazing. It's huge and very solid and I loved building it and I love looking at it.

I think the price for the full set is reasonable. I sourced my own pieces and probably paid more than this after all the various shipping costs through bricklink.
