Managed to get at least one post up a day for 24 days.  Broke the streak yesterday.  A new streak begins today.

AZ is going to reissue their MiG-17 kits.  They have previously said these are going to be completely redone, which is good as the original kits are awful.

Magazine review: RT Vol.38 #3 (Fall 2016)

The latest issue of RT rolled in a week or two ago and though I read it right away, I’m just getting around to doing the review.

Heck, these reviews of RT could be on autopilot now.  Every one is the same.  It’s a great magazine; you should join IPMS/Canada.

Well, it is true for this issue as well.  We get part two of Jim Bates Canadian Hurricane article as well as decals to make a few of the aircraft profiled.  There is also a nice build of a series of Canadian Sherman variants.  As I’ve said so many times before, it is a great magazine; you should join IPMS/Canada.  Plus, free decals!!!

SBS is doing a Caudron 600.  I’d never heard of the aircraft before.  Since SBS is doing it, I find myself wanting to build it.

This is a display monument, but I wonder if the MiG-23 ever wore such a scheme when active.


Well this is scary
