Does anyone have any detailed info on the landing gear of a blackbird ?
I need this to complete the model i am working in at the moment. Pictures, blueprints,
sketches anything, or else i will just steal from the f14 or something.

I don't have pics or designs of it, but it's a dual nose/triple mains design. The tires were laced with aluminum and filled with nitrogen, and at least the outer tire was silver to help dissipate heat from the airframe.

Although I am from the UK I recently spent a great week in New York. One of the highlights being a trip to the USS Intrepid.

There on the deck, for all to see, is an SR71 Blackbird. As you live in Westchester NY, I believe its only a 30 min train ride for you to get to NY and see / sketch / photograph the landing gear for yourself. Entry to the museum is abou 25 dollars and its a fantastic experience

Sorry Argus , It is not an SR-71 but an A-12. Which was the forerunner of the YF-12 and then the SR-71. Operated by the C.I.A 1129th SAS.

Ok Ok, my bad. But I'm sure that for this guys purposes the differences in the landing gear will be negligible ?! Im not an aviation guru so I wouldnt know but I wouldnt imagine that the difference between the A12 and the SR71 landing gear assembly arent that great?
