When I got back into modeling in the early 1980s, one of the first models I built was a Matchbox Mirage as an Israeli Mirage IIICJ.  As you can imagine, it was a rough kit.  We’ve really needed a new IIICJ.  Modelsvit has come thru for us and I must say I want one, or two.

Someone smacked the Iranians.  Was it the Israelis, the Saudis or both?

Modeling Website

Yoav Efreti is a modeler whose work has appeared in Scale Aircraft Modeling.  He concentrates on 72nd scale aircraft, mostly Israeli.  He has started a new website, Yoavation.  Go take a look. (h/t to Jim Bates for the pointer)

This is way cool.  I know I’ve blogged about this technology before.  I think this type of technology will lead us more quickly to the use of robots in combat to avoid casualties.

At least not until they get their rockets to work.  Story here.  While space launch failures usually sadden me, I can’t say that this story brings anything but joy to my little heart. (h/t Jeff “Inch High” Groves)(post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Question here.  Iran simply doesn’t have the ability to project its military power much beyond its borders except thru the use of terrorist proxies.

First aid training

I’ve thought for quite a while that a program to train up large numbers of volunteers with first aid training to assist in natural disasters and mass casualty events would be a good idea.  Apparently there are programs like this one that are taking things even a step further.  I hope this program spreads.

This sounds like good news.  Sooner rather than later one of these systems is going to get a real world workout.

This is interesting.  It also makes one wonder about all of the criticism that the F-35 has received.

Speaking of the future, this is coming, and sooner than you think.  Already in use.
