Glad to see this little show getting some well deserved recognition.  If you haven’t watched it, you should. There are some really good performances.

Iran looks like it is pushing to pick a fight. Note at the end of the story the bit about the drone.

Good news?

Gee, I wonder which manufacturer makes the better PZL.37 Los kit.  We live in the best times for modelers.

Russia, which readers know I think is a impotent force as far as its military goes, has unveiled a new aircraft carrier design.  As the article points out, the design will most likely never be built and Russia’s one and only carrier is out of commission and probably headed for scrapping.  Russia’s 2017 GDP was $1.58 trillion dollars, which is less than Canada’s $1.6 trillion and paltry compared to the USA’s $22 trillion.  Russia simply can’t keep a world class military going, and what they have is simply wasting away.

That is the number of posts I’ve done on this blog in the last 11 years.  The blog has changed significantly over the years. (I’m not sure for the better.)  In any case, one of my goals is to go back and re-read all of the old posts, to try and get a feel for how its changed, and maybe recapture anything I was doing that I’ve lost.  I am also always open to suggestions for what you the reader want to see. (More modelling!  Yes, I know).  Ok this is now 3277, and I hope to continue for some time to come.

I didn’t realize that so many Nike missiles were deployed around Cleveland. (h/t to Jim Bates for the pointer)
