Was headed to the Dayton contest on Saturday, when I got clocked just over the Ohio river bridge.  Got my bell rung and lost my last year’s production of kits, but it could have been much, much worse.

Technology is going to do a lot to change the lives of the elderly and disabled.

I am not sure this guy is right as far as timing goes, but I do think that self-driving cars will disrupt society and the economy in ways we can only dimly foresee.

Neat idea

Driving will be way different over the next 20 years.  This is a neat idea, but it may just be a stop-gap until all cars are driver-less and are all aware of where each other are. (At which point Skynet becomes self-aware.)

Wow. Just wow.

Think of how many people this will put out of work once the technology is fully mature.

I believe that these will be here sooner than everyone expects.  I also believe that it will cause big changes in society, many of which can only be guessed at now.

In addition to the SB2U long term project I am working on, I am also working on this kit for a diorama I have planned.

It is a simple kit.  I am building it out of the box. I hope to have it done before too long.

Here are a few photos of an actual Mercedes 170V done up as a German WWII staff vehicle.  MiniArt models makes a 35th scale kit of the vehicle.
