The Russians are at it again.  While I really don’t see the Russians as a real threat, we still have to treat them as such.

Proving once again that we live in the golden age of modeling, news comes that their will be an injection molded kit of the Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer.  I was surprised to learn that so many civil operators operated this aircraft.

Looks like the Russians sent another spy ship through the channel.  The Royal Navy provided an escort. I’ve said before that I think the Russian military, especially the Russian Navy is a paper tiger.  However, it is still best for western navies to keep on their toes.

I am pretty sure I heard this story before, but I came across a mention of it recently and was intrigued all over again.  There are tons of these little WWII stories out there.
