The US Army is looking at not only a new rifle, but a new ammo that isn’t the current 5.56mm standard size.  Interesting discussion here.

Some people have to learn lessons, like don’t break into other people’s homes, the hard way.  Good for the young boy in the story.

2015 Modeling report #20

Date: July 10th, 2015

Time:  10:00 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. (Time: 1.25 hrs)

Yearly total: 27.04 hrs

I meant to put this report in when it occurred in July, but I kept putting it off and forgetting.  I actually got a bit of modeling done, and it felt good.  Reminded me of why I like the hobby and why it is so sad that I get to do it so little.  Started fixing the decals on the Airfix Mustang and did a bit of work on the Takom Siege gun.

Actually got some modeling done.  Real progress for the first time since the end of January.  Man, that is sad.  As promised, I am including a photo with this report.  Worked on the Takom Siege gun.  Also got to reconnect via Skype with famed Canadian modeler Jim Bates.  That was nice.  It is amazing how a bit of modeling can improve your attitude.

Time:  10:00 p.m. to 10:45 p.m. (Time: .75 hrs)

Yearly total: 21.54 hrs

I am over a month late in putting this report up.  My hobby has ground to a halt, which is killing me.  I worked on the Takom siege gun for about 45 minutes.  No visible progress.
