There was no post on this blog on Sunday, March 3rd, 2019.  This is the first time in 2019 that there has been a day without a post.  This may have been the longest streak of daily posts in the blog’s history. (I am too lazy to go back and look.)  In the future, I will try not to have any days where there isn’t at least one post.

On a related topic, this blog has been sorely lacking in my personal modeling content.  There is a reason for that.  I haven’t gotten much modeling in lately.  In fact it has been two weeks since I even touched a model.  I am hoping that life slows down a bit and I can get in some quality modeling time.

January 2019 was a good month for the blog.  I put up 85 posts, which is a new record.  The blog experience an uptick in traffic and is now seeing visitors at a rate that hasn’t happened since 2013, which was the best year for the blog in terms of visitors.  Good news.

As readers know I’ve been doing some research on Japanese Airfield Equipment in WWII.  Super modeler Jeff “Inch High” Groves pointed me toward the series on the Arawasi blog on Japanese Airfield Equipment.  Well worth studying.

Apologies to the readers for a lack of direct modeling content since the beginning of the new year.  My plan was to dedicate 2019 to having more direct modeling content and photos.  However, my job is such that the first 10 days of the new year are always a busy time.  That has led to more “link farming” than I had intended.  Please stay with me.  I promise that more substantive content is on its way.

While you wait for me to get my act together, go visit Jeff Groves’ blog.  Lots of great content there.

It is amazing what you come across on the internet

You can get lost on the internet forever if you are not careful.  While looking for something completely different, I ran across this site on Australian aviation.  I was particularly interested in this page.  Be careful. Don’t get lost.

Happy 2019

2019 is here.  As far as the blog goes, 2018 was a good year. After viewership trending downward for 5 years, the number of page views went up substantially in 2018.  No where near the high reached in 2012, but a start on the road back. (BTW, I’ve been blogging since mid-2008, so I am going on over 10 years of this.)  I am hoping with the inspiration of friends like Jeff Groves and Jim Bates that 2019 will be a banner year both in modeling and blogging.  Come back often.
