Looks like Hasegawa is reissuing their Mavis.  I wish they’d retool it like they recently did with the Emily.

The Israelis are apparently using the F-35 in combat.  After all the complaints, it will be interesting to see how it performs in the real world.

Test build here.  I am a bit concerned with the wings.  They look like they have the same problem that the AMT kit does (i.e. the wings don’t droop and look more like they do when the 52 is in flight.) I am betting the outriggers don’t touch the ground.  That will mean some major work to get it to look right in the wheels down pose.

It is out.  For some reason I already thought this one had been released.  This gives me hope that they’ll do a MiG-19

Not good news

If Chinese forces are actively using lasers to try an blind our pilots, you have to think that the Chinese are willing to up the tensions between the two countries.  I wonder if this was a local commander or some local troops going off script.  If not, that worries me.
