As I organize my new model room, one of the difficult parts to organize is my paint selection.  I found this on Amazon.  It looks like it may work.  In fact, in one of the purchaser photos, you can see someone using it to organize Model Master paint bottles.  I’ll report more when I get it.

Looks like we will be getting a new tool D.510 in 2019.  This is good news as I’ve wanted to do one in Chinese markings for a long time now.

Looks like the USA will be back in the manned crewed spaceflight business by next year. (Thank God!)  This was way too long in coming.

And, NASA just landed another probe on Mars.  Hopefully we will learn a lot and get men on Mars soon.  (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
