Turns out Bronco Models out of China is going to be doing a 72nd scale DF-1 SRBM.  The DF-1 is the Chinese copy of the Soviet SS-2 Sibling SRBM.  This will definitely fill a hole in my collection.

This story of China using a drone to keep tabs on US Navy ships passing through the Taiwan straight raises an interesting question of how drones (UAVs) will affect naval warfare in the future.  I am not sure anyone knows.

There are a bunch of things like this happening, almost none of which get any coverage in the western media.  China is a boiling pot.  It is yet to be seen if it will boil over, and if so, how.

that maybe the Straight of Hormuz is the new world hot spot, the Chinese do something to bring the focus back to the South China Sea.  It is hideously expensive, but this is why the US needs a world class navy.

More great news from the region most likely to start a hot war.  The Chinese have put anti-ship missiles on the man-made islands in the South China Sea.  This was the inevitable end of the Chinese behavior in the region.  Where do we go from here?  Who knows?
