A new spy satellite is launched.

The Army is developing counter-drone technology.  This is the first real air threat to US forces since WWII.

SS-4 update

The SS-4 is together.  In my quest to do more posting of actual model building, here is a shot of it all together.  I will say the casting is pretty good and it went together well.  I am doing a bit of sanding and priming and will get another shot up soon.

The Airfix Me-262 has been released.  I cannot wait to see this one and have to admit that it will move to the top of my building queue.

PLAN Type 039A submarine

Filed under: Modeling — dknights @ 10:43 pm

While working on other models, I like to build something simple at the same time as more difficult projects.  1/700th scale subs fit the bill and I’ve built quite a few of them.  This is the HobbyBoss Chinese Type 039A sub.  A very simple kit. but attractive in an ugly sort of way.  (Clearly I need to dust my models before I photograph them.)
