Faster than a speeding bullet…

SR-71 BlackbirdNo really, this one is actually faster than a speeding bullet! In fact the SR-71 Blackbird was faster than pretty much anything that ever flew, apart from the X-15 – and that was an experimental rocket plane.

For this build I’m going to be doing the Revell 1/72 SR-71 Blackbird, otherwise known as the “Habu”.

This will be a little different as I intend to light up the exhausts of this one with about 30 LEDs all powered from an Arduino microcontroller. In this build I’m going to be covering all of the wiring and the lighting techniques, and will also cover a bit about programming the Arduino.
