SBS keeps making kits of these obscure 1930s aircraft that I didn’t have any interest in…until I learned that SBS was making a kit of them.  The latest is the C.450 racing plane.  History here.

All jokes about French “cheese eating surrender monkeys” aside, this is the example of a man’s man.  RIP.

A great story here.  I’ve been through Goshen, Indiana on several occasions.  I’d never heard this story before.

Looks like Special Hobby is moving along on their Potez 25.  I’ll be interested to see how many versions you;ll be able to build.

Looks like we will be getting a new tool D.510 in 2019.  This is good news as I’ve wanted to do one in Chinese markings for a long time now.

A long time ago, I built an Israeli Mirage III from the Matchbox kit and did a kit bash of a Argentinian Dagger from a kit I don’t remember.  I don’t have either anymore.  Therefore I’d like to get this kit when it comes out.

Interesting article on the new French replacement helicopter.  It will be interesting to see if this has any success beyond the French military.
