That is the model number of the latest Russian sub project.  Story here. So far the only 700th scale kit of the sub is this one. I am hoping that eventually we will get one in plastic.

I mentioned the other day a new set of masks for MiG-29SMT camo.  Well, it looks like another model company is releasing a MiG-29SMT. Zvezda is stepping up to the plate.

South East Asia gets hotter

Taiwan is upgrading its fleet of aircraft. Makes sense to me, and IMHO the US should sell more such aircraft to Taiwan.  Only a united front will discourage China from adventurism in the South China Sea.
