You can get lost on the internet forever if you are not careful.  While looking for something completely different, I ran across this site on Australian aviation.  I was particularly interested in this page.  Be careful. Don’t get lost.

Australia is buying the German-made Boxer APC.  For you modelers out there, there is at least one 35th scale kit of the Boxer, and more importantly, one in God’s One True Scale.

As regular readers know, this particular hot-spot is one that I think bears special attention.  Here is some news that may affect the area.  Australia is donating two LCHs to the cash-strapped Philippines.  Article here.  And in case you are wondering, this is the type of ship being discussed.

Its a town in western Australia.  I’ve just finished reading a book about it and an attack by the Japanese in the early part of the war.  Then I came across an article about a Beaufighter wreck recently located off the town.  Story here.
