Air Force PR

The Air Force is drawing back big on outreach while it retrains its PR operations.  IMHO, in my opinion it isn’t a good sign that they are spending this much time on bureaucracy.

It looks like the first kits will be available at the beginning of April.  Unsurprisingly, the first release will have Czech markings.

I’ve never heard of Scaleworx.  They are apparently going to release an Italian manufactured AW109 LUH. Story here.

The USAF is reemphasizing the military theatre of space operation.  Clearly if the balloon goes up, space will be a decisive area of operations and it looks like the USAF is coming to realize it.  Story here.

2018 Modeling #20

Date: 3/4/2018

Time 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (1.0 hrs.)

2018 Total time: 23.3 hrs.

Well, I made it all the way to March before starting another kit while I still have 3 in progress and 20+ on the shelf of doom.  However, thanks to Skippy, I have the Brengun MXY-7.  Given my interest in late war “wonder weapons”, this one tickles my sweet spot.  Also, given how simple it is, there is a small hope that it will allow me to finish an extra kit this year.  One thing I noticed immediately is that this kit, like the Tamiya Zero, has the attachment points on the joining face of the kit parts.  I love this and hope other manufacturers will do it.

Spent the hour studying the instructions and cutting out major parts.

I ran across this vendor at a show a while ago.  His stuff is really nice.  A great way to display your latest build.  Go check him out.
