Sword recently released a new kit of the F3H Demon.  Tommy Thomason over on his Tailhook Topics blog has a great review of the kit.  I picked this one up at the LHS recently.

The highest compliment

Jeff “inch High” Groves pays me a high compliment on his blog today by blaming (or crediting) me with being responsible for him blogging.  I’ll gladly take the credit.  My legacy in modeling is now done.

If you like podcasts, I recommend the Strategy Talk podcast, by the guys who run Strategypage.com.  The latest episode is on the South China Sea, which is one of the areas where I have a real interest.

Blog news

There was no post on this blog on Sunday, March 3rd, 2019.  This is the first time in 2019 that there has been a day without a post.  This may have been the longest streak of daily posts in the blog’s history. (I am too lazy to go back and look.)  In the future, I will try not to have any days where there isn’t at least one post.

On a related topic, this blog has been sorely lacking in my personal modeling content.  There is a reason for that.  I haven’t gotten much modeling in lately.  In fact it has been two weeks since I even touched a model.  I am hoping that life slows down a bit and I can get in some quality modeling time.

January 2019 was a good month for the blog.  I put up 85 posts, which is a new record.  The blog experience an uptick in traffic and is now seeing visitors at a rate that hasn’t happened since 2013, which was the best year for the blog in terms of visitors.  Good news.

As readers know I’ve been doing some research on Japanese Airfield Equipment in WWII.  Super modeler Jeff “Inch High” Groves pointed me toward the series on the Arawasi blog on Japanese Airfield Equipment.  Well worth studying.

Apologies to the readers for a lack of direct modeling content since the beginning of the new year.  My plan was to dedicate 2019 to having more direct modeling content and photos.  However, my job is such that the first 10 days of the new year are always a busy time.  That has led to more “link farming” than I had intended.  Please stay with me.  I promise that more substantive content is on its way.

While you wait for me to get my act together, go visit Jeff Groves’ blog.  Lots of great content there.

It is amazing what you come across on the internet

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.
