    The designer haven't replied yet, seems like he's abandoned the email as well... I agree those slots are not easy, also I think the wings need some further reinforcements.

    The author did reply after all! Hope it is alright to post the reply here:

    Hi,
    Thanks for your interest. Answering to your questions:
    1) The SR-71 model is not my design, but was made by a Korean friend, called Min-soo Jong.
    2) Of course, you have permission to repaint the model, but I would ask you to make it available in the internet for free, giving credit to the original designer, Jong. I would be happy to host your painted version, in case you don't have your own webpage. In any case, I would like to see it :)
    3) Yes, there are no updates since 2005. Many changes in my life and professional career... I have other hobbies too.
    Good luck!
