It looks like IBG isn’t the only company doing a PZL-37.  Fly has announced one as well.

Japanese Carrier Deck

A few weeks ago I finished a  WWII resin Japanese Carrier Deck.  It is made by Just Plane Stuff.  I am not sure the company is around anymore.  In any event the deck is very nicely cast and paints up well.  While a Zero is a bit lost on it, the base is big enough for a Kate or Val.

Here is my post on 72nd scale aircraft forum

Never heard of this company, but these look good.

In praise of the Badger 150

I confess, I have 4 airbrushes.  1 is a Skybow Iwata clone, 1 is a Tamiya Superfine, 1 is a Badger Velocity and finally I have a Badger 150 that I’ve owned for at least 30 years.  I like all of them, and they all have their uses.  The Velocity is a dream for fine detail spraying.  But, my everyday, go to brush is the 150.  It is a workhorse.  Other airbrushes can be finicky from time to time or prone to clogging.   The 150 is just a great brush.  It sprays very fine, not as fine as the Velocity, but good enough for 90% of spraying in 72nd scale.  It always works,  It is comfortable, or I am just very use to it.  I highly recommend it.

I’ve always loved the MiG-19.  The Chinese Q-5 is an interesting development of it.  Now we have a kit of it.

ICM has finally released a kit of this version.  I’ll wait for a review to see if they really made the necessary changes.
