ACE is producing a new kit of the Ka-25 Russian helicopter.  This looks to be an improvement over the old Airfix kit.

The slow motion disaster that is Venezuela is fascinating to watch from afar. Up close, I am sure it is a dystopian hellscape.  The concept of paying laid off workers in tires is just amazing.

It looks like Virgin Galactic is close to actually taking tourists to space.  I’ll be interested to see what the demand is.    ( Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Of course, who didn’t. Japan is going to buy 100 additional F-35s, including F-35Bs which can operate from the country’s two helicopter carriers.  Makes perfect sense.  Also, Japan is ramping up its defense spending.  The South China Sea is going to become a more interesting place that it already is.
