      Out of stock
  SR-71A Blackbird serial 61-7978 (nicknamed "Rapid Rabbit" due to the Playboy Rabbit insignia on the tailfins) of the 9th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing, U.S. Air Force at Kadena Air Base, Japan in 1972

Rare model produced exclusively for the Japanese market. Limited to only 1,000 Worldwide, complete with Play Boy Bunny on the tail. At 18" long (45cms) with just an 8" (21cm) wingspan the model features removeable undercarriage, engraved panel lines, pilot figures, and clear display stand. Please note the main undercarriage can only be fitted if display is to be freestanding and not on the display stand.

The Lockheed SR-71 was an advanced, long-range, Mach 3 strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed from the Lockheed A-12 and YF-12A aircraft by the Lockheed Skunk Works. The SR-71 was unofficially named the Blackbird, and called the Habu by its crews. Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was responsible for many of the design's innovative concepts. A defensive feature of the aircraft was its high speed and operating altitude, whereby, if a surface-to-air missile launch were detected, standard evasive action was simply to accelerate. The SR-71 line was in service from 1964 to 1998, with 12 of the 32 aircraft being destroyed in accidents, though none were lost to enemy action.
