A “production car” that does 300+ mph.  Where in the world, other than in Nevada and some other western states would you ever hope to drive such a thing that fast?  But, I have to say, it would be cool to do.

Did you ever just want to build a model because of the insignia or markings?  I want to do this one, just for the chance to do Maltese cross markings.

I assume this is the old Supermodel kit.  I don’t know if Italeri has done anything to the molds.

Dora Wings is planning on doing an S.55.  While not my cup of tea, this is an important aircraft in aviation history and glad to see a new one done in 72nd scale.

The Italian version of the G.50 is out.  I was hoping they’d be at the Nats, but they weren’t.

My Italian is not very good, but if I read this correctly SEM is going to release a 72nd scale resin SM.84.  That would be good news.

I will admit I am a complete SBS fan boy.  I love their stuff.  Given that, I can’t wait for their new G.50

The Italeri AB41 from the shelf of doom is almost done.  It looks like it will make it across the finish line in 2017.

Chinese people in Roman Britain

This is interesting.  If correct, it would indicate that ethnic Chinese were in Britain at the time of the Romans.  It is known that the Romans and Chinese traded, mostly thru intermediaries, but this would indicate more than that.  Very interesting.
