We Try Our Best But Sometimes It Doesn't Quite Work Out
Which is another way of saying that a few weeks ago I ran a photo that might not have been runnable. Back on the 22nd of March I put up a shot of a pair of C-124s in flight with a credit line to USAF via Mark Morgan. Mark e-mailed me this morning to tell me he'd discovered that the photo wasn't from his collection after all but had come off of Airliner's.Net. Like a lot of us, Mark's collection comprises thousands of images and it's pretty tough to keep track of everything just due to sheer volume; it's something that happens to us all from time to time. The point is that the mistake was caught and, even though the folks over at AN may be perfectly cool with it, I've taken down both the photo and its caption. If you already saved it for your files please go back and re-do the credit line; if not then it just doesn't matter, does it?
Shakey's Return; Let's Make Up For That Image We Removed
Mark sent another pile of photos of Heavy Iron this morning, a couple of which were C-74s and C-124s. It's going to have to be a really short day, so these will be The Whole Deal for a Wednesday:
Ain't It Always the Way...
With absolutely no photos, and in keeping with their somewhat secretive approach to things (which I personally enjoy, truth be told), Tamiya have just announced the release of an A6M3/3a kit in 1/48th scale. You may recall that only a day or two ago I was ranting that the Hasegawa kits of the Zero-Sen would continue to be my kits of choice of this important Japanese fighter, based primarily on availability of variants (just one until this morning!) and price. The price thing is still there---those Tamiya Zekes are just too darned expensive for what's in the box---but they finally seem to have begun whittling away at the variants part of the equation. Maybe if I start whining about it again they'll give us a Type 21 sooner rather than later, and then drop the price too...
Until The Next Time
And that's it for today---I'm off for an as-yet undefined adventure with an equally undefined cast of characters. See you again when I can but until then, be good to your neighbor!
