End of the year updates, comments, etc.
As with a lot of folks with mini companies, this is the 2nd job. My 'real job' responsibilities have kept me swamped the past couple of months, not leaving much time to devote to new products, much less keeping the website updated.
There are a number of updates on the MSD line of 1/285 planes. I'd expect to get photos up shortly. Some of the new releases are PB4Y Privateer, YB-40 Fortress Gunship, Fokker G-1, Lockheed PV-2 Ventura, Ki-30 Ann, deHaviiland Venom, CR-32 and CR-42.
A Merry and Blessed Christmas to One and All.
