2022, the year of the tiger

The zodiac sign Tiger is a symbol of strength, exorcising evils, and braveness. 
What better occasion to feature a photo of the "Tora-butai" with their tail marking of a tiger that can go as far as 1000 Ri and always come back.

So, another Covid year is behind us. We managed to finish our new Eagle Eye #3 on the Mitsubishi Ki-21 "Sally" and the Fiat BR.20 in hinomaru. The reaction of all those who got the publication in their hands was more than enthusiastic. We couldn't be happier to hear you liked our effort. And this release ties well with the forthcoming "Sally" kits.

Uncertain what the new year will bring, but we have at least two projects on the way scheduled for 2022. The first is a secret surprise, the other a new issue of our magazine.

This blog was iddle for a while when we were working to finish the new EE, but rest assured we are here, alive and kicking. Unfortunately, very very few friends contributed this year. We hope you are all healthy and still interested in the Japanese aircraft and aviation.

As always, a HUGE "thank you" to our good friends:
Sinang Aribowo, James Boyd, Devlin Chouinard, Jan Kaňov, Danilo Renzulli, Zygmunt Szeremeta and Eric Vogel.

All the best for the new year to everybody out there.
