the same on both sides.
Some question about the N scale model being a copy of the Walthers - well it is not.
The RR-71 N scale model had the correct rib count on the side
The door on the N scale model appears correct in style and width
The roof on the N scale model matches the diagonal panel roof on the RR-71
The only problem with the N scale model is the length is advertised as 51' and the RR-71 length over end sills is 52' 4"
So in my opinion the N scale RR-71 looks to be a good representation of the as built SFRC RR-71 in 1962
