Modeling the Airfix B5N2 Kate

I am in the middle of building the Airfix B5N2 Kate.  While this is an almost an OOB build, I have looked at available reference.  By far, the best is the  Kagero book on the Kate (#79), with the FAOW #32 on the Kate as the second, though if you have the Kagero book, you will have almost all of the photos from the FAOW #32.  If you are going to detail the cockpit, the Mikesh book on Japanese Aircraft Interiors is a must.  I am waiting for some decals from Hannants,, and will update you further.

A new video from Evan.  As I have told him, even though I don’t do model railroading, I learn a lot from his videos on that subject.

I mentioned on the PMM Facebook page that I really like the Berna clamps.  I noted there was a learning curve with them.  Our listeners were split.  Do you use them?  Do you like them?

The Great War

Over the last few years I’ve found myself more and more interested in WWI.  I think it may be all those cool armored cars getting released.  If you have an interest in WWI, I can highly recommend this YouTuber series.

For the last month or two I haven’t been posting as much.  No excuse other than life got very busy.  I am back to posting now and hope to get one new post a day up.

Just within the last day, this and this happened and barely made any news.  Space launches are becoming very common, which is both good news and bad news. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
