Default SR 71 time lapse

And I thought hanging my jet in the garage was a pain in the rear https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=gGzq_ESN44M

Well.... I did install a block an tackle system in the ceiling to move the tooling about....
No one would know unless they see a full size being taken apart, but 'Junction 715' is where the full size comes apart (nose / tail wise), and that's where I designed my nose to come off for transport.
I considered the fold up wings for transport, as the full size does this to be able to swap or service the engines. I ultimately didn't do it, as I figured I'd only run into a dozen people that would know that's the way the real one did it, and turned creative efforts to other facets of the project.

Sad part is that although you can take the nose and wing tips off the full size bird, once you see those cuts to the inside of the nacelles, you know the bird will never fly again. Not that they ever would, but still.... Those cuts were done on many of the birds to get them to the museums they are now in. The museums that had the planes flown in, are still intact, such as the A-12 and SR-71 in Dayton for example.
