The modelwife and kids went on vacation and left me alone for a week.  I decided to attempt a “Geldmacher Blitz” (a build of a kit from 6 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Monday.  While I failed in my attempt to get a model completed in that time, I was able to finish the Tamiya A6M2 by the time my family returned from vacation.  For purposes of keeping track I lumped this all into one build session even though it stretched over 9 days and the 15 hour total is a guestimate.  I will do a first half of the year roundup in my next post.

More evidence that the Pacific is the most important strategic area right now.  I suspect that more of these will be built.  Look for one in Japan at some point.

More Asian carrier development

The F-35B has really changed the game when it comes to smaller navies having carrier capability.  Korea and Japan will both have such capability as soon as they put in orders for the F-35B.  (I have no doubt that they both will)

Japanese Carriers

Not the WWII kind.  Looks like the Japanese are ready to admit what everyone knew.  Their new Helicopter carriers are going to become full-fledged STOVL carriers. I see some F-35B sales in Japan’s future.

Looks like Hasegawa is reissuing their Mavis.  I wish they’d retool it like they recently did with the Emily.
