The oldest living Medal of Honor recipient has died.  Clearly a life well lived.

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.

New HS-126

Brengun has announced a new Hs-126.  This is good news as the previous kits of the Hs-126 are well over 30 years old,. if not older.  The HS-126 was used by several smaller air forces and a new kit will surely be better than current offerings.

I love the XP-47H.  Probably my favorite aircraft that never made it into production.  Scrolling through YouTube. I came across this.

WWII is endlessly fascinating.  I learn something I didn’t know all the time.  The latest was Operation Mutton. HP Harrows in combat as anti-bomber aircraft.  Wild.
