The products of this small company are pretty impressive.  I had bought one or two items from them before, and then got some more at the IPMS/USA Nationals.  The stuff is top quality and their two full resin kits are incredible.  Check them out.

Looks like Iran plans on spending some of their soon-to-be unfrozen money on the Chinese aircraft.

His final book is to be released.  I wish it had been another Moist Von Lipwig book, but just glad to have one more in the series.

2015 Modeling report #20

Date: July 10th, 2015

Time:  10:00 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. (Time: 1.25 hrs)

Yearly total: 27.04 hrs

I meant to put this report in when it occurred in July, but I kept putting it off and forgetting.  I actually got a bit of modeling done, and it felt good.  Reminded me of why I like the hobby and why it is so sad that I get to do it so little.  Started fixing the decals on the Airfix Mustang and did a bit of work on the Takom Siege gun.
