Militarymodelers.com.  They do something that the old MMP magazine used to do, which is builds of models out of the box with no paint or filler.  This will be a great resource for someone building a kit once the site gets more content up. (h/t to Jim Bates for the pointer)

Is 72nd scale still relevant?

That is the question posited by this blog post.  Glad he is a PMM listener.  Naturally, my answer is a resounding yes!  Frankly, I think 72nd scale is as healthy as it has ever been.  Your thoughts?

I’ve missed posting a couple of days this past week.  I’ve been juggling a number of things, so posting just slipped by.  I will try to do better.

Happy 2020

2019 was a decent year for the blog.  It had the most visitors since 2015.  Over 5100 people visited and there were over 680 posts (about 2 a day.)

For 2020 my goals are:

  1. More modeling content including more photos and reports on actual modeling.  (That means I’ll have to model more, but I am willing to make that sacrifice for you, dear reader.)
  2. At least one post every day.  I need to take more advantage of the scheduling function for posts.
  3. More book reviews.
  4. Some new surprises.
  5. I’ll continue to post on real world military developments, military and space technology while keeping American politics to a minimum.

I hope to keep these promises to you.  Please comment freely and let me know what you want and what you like.
