1:72 Scale Metal Diecast - Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird - 61-7962, "R.I.P. Detachment 1" - Length: 17.75" Wingspan:9.25" This Blackbird model has a cockpit that can open and close. A pilot figure is included in the cockpit. The model has an optional positioned landing gear, which can be posed in the retracted or extended positions. The box includes a metal stand where the model can be attached for display. The stand is made entirely of metal, it is very sturdy and it is actually held together by a nut/screw assembly. The wheels can roll freely and are quite smooth (so be careful where you put this thing, or it could roll downhill). The fuselage is all metal and really quite heavy. The photos don't really make justice to how impressive this model really is. Spy - Stealth - low profile planes are quite hard to photograph (and make to look good) because of their reduced cross section, at 1/72 scale this model measures just about 18 inches long and has a wingspan of about 9.25 inches wide. The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very crisp and one can see the little dots that represent the rivets holding down the panels. This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14. The box is 18 inches long by 10 inches wide by 3.5 inches high and looks like a little suitcase (it has a little plastic handle).
