Long term project

One of my long term projects is to build one aircraft of an ANG unit from each of the 50 States and Puerto Rico.  With having completed an Indiana Air National Guard P-51 and with Meng announcing  a new F-106 kit, my interest has been rekindled.  So far, this is what I think I’d like to build for selected states:

Indiana     P-51

Michigan, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Montana, Florida, California  F-106

Texas, Pennsylvania   F-102

Kentucky RF-4C

New Mexico F-16

I am open to suggestions for the rest.

A very nice build of an Me-209.  You don’t often see a build of this.

Russia is developing a drone sub to deliver a nuclear warhead.

The Chinese think they’ve developed a new stealth coating.

Apparently there is fuel for a nuclear bomb available on the black market.

 

Sleep well.

I buy a fair number of used books off of Amazon.  This story is an interesting peek behind the curtain.

See here.  I wonder when we’ll see the first use of an ASAT against an enemy satellite.
