Looks like the Japanese are seeking closer integration of missile defense with the US. Smart on their part and makes sense for the US as well.

I will admit that I’d like to get all three of these kits, but especially the Japanese truck.

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.
