I agree with you 100% Modelling subjects have absolutely nothing to do with politics. Your example of German aircraft and other subjects is a very good one. Not only German but also Japanese, Italian and from several other countries allied with Germany during WWII. History is history, it should not be forgotten.
Best wishes to you D.!!

Nope.

First off, some of us want dioramas to include "bad guy" planes, and not sanitized, either. My kids need to know that the swastika was Germany's symbol, and that those who use it today in a positive light as opposed to historical, should have their motives questioned. Hiding those symbols in association with past atrocities is actually a problem. Context is key.

Second, unless you are sending money to Russia, it's not actually benefiting them in any way.

Third, it's good to resist simps who want to smear you in a "guilt by association" logical fallacy when in fact you are doing nothing wrong. Courage is contagious and appreciated.

I went ahead and turned everything back on. So there are two new versions of the Tu-154 available, and a couple more as soon as Papermate gets the betas done. I still have to finish adding the military ones to the site.

I have been thinking the same thing, several aircraft and helicopters are used by both sides. I did kind of admire Aaron's decision though.

The only one I want for now is the An-225 Buran carrier. I already got the Ukranian version.

It's done!

I finally got the website rebuild finished! I think. Pictures with black frames around them are models not released yet (Beta builders?)

Somebody let me know if I missed anything.

I'm making every effort to make it to the IPMC this year. Got my registration papers in, and the hotel room booked. Now I just gotta find a cheap airline to fly on. Anybody got any recommendations? Last one I made it to, I flew American Airlines, which wasn't a pleasant experience. Southwest was better, but I don't know if they fly into Dulles anymore, plus they're kinda pricey if you don't have the employee discount. I checked out Spirit and Frontier, but they don't fly into Dulles.
