I hate NBA basketball.  While I enjoy the college game, the NBA is boring.  Not only is their product boring, but now the NBA has shown itself to be cowardly money-grubbers.  With the current controversy over the NBA, China and Hong Kong, this happened last night, not in China but in Philadelphia.

...from the end of the cold war.  I recall that the Israelis did something similar stealing an entire SA-2 or SA-3 SAM radar unit from the Egyptians back in the 70s.

This is flat out amazing.  This isn’t the first time the guys from South Park have been ahead of the curve.

Announcement here.  I am unclear if this is a new mold or if Italeri is leasing another company’s mold.  I am interested as this version hasn’t been done by Eduard (yet).

An interesting article about a possible change in approach to fighter development in the US.  Given our current procurement mess, I would like to see some sort of change.

It appears we may be getting one next year.  However, many questions remain. Early model?  Latest generation?  Mid-production? All?  We can only hope.
