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.

I’ve already admitted that I am an SBS fanboy.  I must admit that this aircraft in this boxing looks neat.  I will hopefully check it out at this years Nats.

Interesting report on the weapons used in the recent strikes on Syria.  Will see if it deters Assad from using such weapons.

I love SBS kits.  They have now released a French Air Force version of their C.600 kit.  I may pick this one up at the IPMS/USA Nationals in Phoenix.
