this is genius man :O ! I especially love the texturing of the plane! The rough metal lit by the sun is really amazingly done. Looks super photorealistic. Great inspiring piece of work!

Really magnificent! A beautiful picture of my favorite plane. A friend once told me that when the SR-71 would land after a long flight the pilots had to wait an hour to get out because the whole plane was red-hot. I especially like the detail on the exhaust.

These were just the coolest planes ever made, the fact that they could dodge an incoming missile just by speeding up doesn't do anything to deter from that opinion xD
