Well it looks like the first version of the C-130 we will get from Zvezda will be an H model.  We’ll have to wait and see the sprues to figure out if other versions are contemplated.

Everyone knows the Roswell, NM UFO event.  In these times the general public thinks of it as the first of the great post-WWII UFO incidents.  Less well known is an incident that occurred 6 months later near Bowling Green, KY and involved the crash of a KY ANG P-51.  Read here. (h/t Jim Bates)

I need another decal sheet like I need a hole in my head.  Yet, I think I’m going to have to pick this one up.  I am a sucker for P-51s in ANG markings and in smaller air forces markings.

Sword is re-releasing a P-47N kit.  I will need one or two of these as I want to do a couple of ANG birds.

An interesting report on a recent UFO encounter that prompted an F-15 scramble.  I wonder what it was?

I have a special interest in ANG aircraft.  This blog, which is neat in some many respects, has a great article on the P-51 in ANG service.
