Wonder how this kit is?  Wonder how it compares to the Airfix kit?

It is out and we have sprue shots and cover art.  I’ve wanted one of these to add to my collection of Romanian aircraft.

Nice to see a sweet story every once in a while.

Revell F-104G

Jim Bates and I recently had a discussion regarding this release.  It is a re-release, but I somehow missed it when it was originally released about 10 years ago.  It was apparently release as both a Canadian and German bird when it was originally issued about 10 years ago, but the re-release appears to be only the German version.

The German-American developed Naval SAM is getting some upgrades.  These missiles are used on a lot of different US and German ships.

Belgium selects the F-35

Looks like Belgium has decided to go with the F-35 over the Eurofighter Typhoon.  Interesting decision.  One result should be to further lower the price of the F-35.

The latest X-37B flight is about to exceed 400 days in space.  Followers of this blog know that I’ve got a particular fascination with the X-37B.  I suspect that one day we’ll learn all about what is going on and will be surprised.  (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
