Mr. Bates commits modeling. I am glad someone is getting something done. His Hurricane looks sweet.

Here is your regular China update.
More and more worker unrest. Frankly, if the conditions that these workers work in were more well known, then I suspect that Chinese goods wouldn’t be so popular here.
This story about a revival in interest in the Communist party and its history is of interest to me since I have been to Chongqing.

Regular readers of this blog know I have little patience for stupid government rules. This one is just a bigger example of the madness that drives me crazy.
I recently received the latest SAFO. As usual it is filled with good information. This one seemed a little smaller than previous issues (fewer pages) but that might have just been my imagination. There is a nice article on the use of DH Beaver aircraft by the UN in the Congo in the early 1960s. There is also an excellent article on DH.60 Moths in Yugoslav service before WWII. As always, I recommend becoming a member.

3d-kits.co.uk produces a conversion set for the early Spitfire that I mentioned in a previous post. Now they have made available for printing instrument panels. See details here. Neat idea.
Master modeler and Ohio attorney extrodinaire, Jim Bates, has been blogging more lately. He has several good posts up recently. Stop by and take a look.

It appears Prince Harry will be going back to war. The story is here. I am glad to see this. The sons of Prince Charles seem to have a much better attitude than their father.

Here is a report of unrest in China. You don’t see this in the news much, but it is happening more and more. I suspect that China is in for social upheaval in the coming years.
