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<sup>®</sup> Model vs. Real SR-71 Blackbird
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.

That's an interesting idea. I haven't really pursued it because there's a rule in LEGO where they don't do any actual aircraft after WWII.

Maybe I will. Thanks :-)

Have you ever considered bringing this set forward through Lego Ideas? I believe it would gain a lot of supporters right away.

My son, Johnny, loves this set! We can't afford it now, but perhaps when he is older, he can earn the money for it himself. He noticed the Luke Skywalker X wing in the last photo. He is slowly adding to his Star Wars lego collection.

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.
