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

Looks like the US military is about to get an upgraded anti-armor, anti-everything else missile.  Good news.

This is interesting.  It seems like the tilt-rotor concept is finally coming into its own.

The military wants a belly gun for the MV-22.  This seems like a no-brainer

Pit Road, a Japanese manufacturer well known for 700th scale ships and some odd armor/artillery pieces has announced a Chinese Z-9 helicopter.  As far as I know this is the first 72nd scale aircraft kit by Pit Road.  I will be very interested to see it.

For fans of Russian aircraft, an Mi-14 is a hole in the 72nd scale modeling world.  Not any longer?

I hadn’t heard anything about this, much less that there was a prototype under construction.

I don’t know where this photo comes from, so I can’t credit it (Let me know if you know and I’ll update the post)  What I want to know is, does someone make decals for this?
