Don’t ask why.  I just felt like posting photos of the views from work.  Here is the view from 600 S. 7th St. looking east.  The “new” federal building is on the right in the photo.  Typical ugly 60s design.

Here is from 600 S. 7th St. looking west.  This shot, as well as the one yesterday were shot with my Samsung phone.  It is of interest to me that the photo that the phone takes are of higher quality than the ones that I took with my Olympus D-340 not too many years ago.  Ain’t technology great?

Magazine review: Scale Aircraft Modelling Vol.32 #2 (Apr. 2010)

SAM is the modeling magazine that I’ve been getting the longest.  I got my first issue in 1982 or so.  I have a pretty much complete set, dating back to the first issue.  While it isn’t the magazine it once was, I have trouble not getting it.

The magazine has had a new look for about a year.  It is OK, and is more readable, though I am not sure about the quality of the content.

In this issue, there are reviews of 72nd scale UC-64, A-6 and Pe-2.  The main article is on the Sunderland and has a number of nice color profiles.  It is a decent issue, but the content is “thin” enough that I can finish an issue in about an hour or so.  I wish SAM has mose more “meat” to the issues.

Magazine review: Military Aircraft Monthly Vol. 8 #12 (Dec. 2009)

As we know from Jim Bates, MAM haas stopped including modeling content in the magazine.    Thus, there won’t be too many more review of the magazine like this one.  I am doubtful that I’ll be getting any issues of MAM after the changeover.

This was the Dec. 2009 issue. (Yes, I am behind.)  It has a build review of the Airfix PR.XIX. (Which has been covered ad nauseum in every modeling magazine over the last year.)  THere are also good historical article on the LaGG-3, the early Stuka and the Hurricane year of the defense of Malta.  All in all it is a very good issue, which makes it all the more sad that we won’t be seeing more like it in the future.
