One of the biggest US failures of WWII.  A great explanation in the video below.  While watching it I can’t help but reflect on how many of our weapons development problems today seem to stem from the same issues from 80 years ago.

I recently posted some color video of WWII Japanese trucks. (h/t Jeff “Inch High” Groves)

Today I came across this amazing build.  Even though it is in devil scale, it is just fantastic.

I am building the Special Navy kit of the Biber submarine.

Amazingly there are a number of these which survived the war, some of which washed up with dead pilots due to the poor design.

One of them has even been restored  to working order.
