*** Update: See video of Harvey’s presentation of his research here ***
Please take some time to enjoy this comprehensive reference document assembled by our own Harvey Low. It covers details of Japanese armour colours, uniforms, and weapons used in the period between 1937 and 1945. There are lots of great historic photos as well as models and memorabilia from Harvey’s personal collection.

Some international flavor in these photos from the IPMS Brazil 28th Annual National Convention, held on Nov. 29 and 30. It’s always great to see what fellow modelers from around the world are doing and these are some of the best!
From Joao Paulo:
“Here is the link with the article and the pictures of our latest convention held at São Paulo, inside the maintenance center of the Northrop F-5E, Casa C-295, Blackhawk, Mi-35M, UAV Hermes 450 and 900 and AS 350 Ecureuil of Brazilian Air Force.
We had 802 models of 186 plastic modelers. The public in the two days of the event (November 29 and 30) was about 2.000 people, with 400 medals divided into many categories. 15 special trophy was given to the best models of each category and the main theme was 70 years of the Landings in Normandy. We had 26 stores selling models, tools and accessories.”
