I’d have been an architect.  I love this YouTube channel.  There is a part of me that just wants to build buildings from scratch.

There is only one Medal of Honor recipient from WWII left.  I am not sure we have enough of these types of citizens today.

On the Plastic Model Mojo podcast a few months ago I was talking with Mike about the abundance of new 72nd scale aircraft kits that have been released in the last few years. I talked about how few mainstream subjects were left that needed updating. One aircraft I did mention is the C-46. Well, it turns out Valom must have heard me. (ha). They have announced a new C-46, in several different boxings.

An injection Ki-54. Now, if it isn’t too much trouble, can I get a Ki-57?

This commando operation in Norway is one of my areas of particular interest.  This is a good YouTube on it.

The USS The Sullivans needs help.  Dig into your pocket a bit if you can.

Thanks to Twitter, I learned a piece of history today.  I had never heard of this unit or their fight against the Fugo balloons. Amazing.
